Quick find behind gate. Layby opposite is useful but full of stinky mid, beware!

Even with reading previous logs for pointers on where this one was it took a while to finally locate it. The vegetation wasn't even that overgrown so must be having an off day! The FBM was in good overall condition with a little moss growing on it.

Easy enough to find and no braken if your are looking in the correct spot. Just go through the gate and follow the fence line on right and its not far away in grass plus occasional nettles.

No chance spotting this one today. Bracken was about 5 foot high.

Log #159. There's a small layby for parking just opposite, so I dumped the car there and hopped the gate to get to the benchmark. There is a geocache nearby, but I tried not to show it in my photos! Overgrown, but FBM is in otherwise good condition. No height tag, but that's pretty standard up here. [ExP-135/MiP-3/Rev-2/BM-11/IS-6/Other-2]

Took some finding in the vegetation. You wouldn't spot this one from the train. Complete with its own hanging garden.

Ross and Cromarty. We spent about 20 minutes looking for this and in looking at the photos, must have been right on top of it.

Despite looking for 20 minutes, we were unable to find the FBM in the very overgrown planting.

Was covered in moss when found so managed to give it a "short,back & sides" :p. Nestled at the back of wooden fence on the left side of the road.

YeahYeahYeah.........

Can't really add to what SpidyM says other than it had a moss mullet, so this particular FBM's been dragged from the 80's...

Just seen the photos.. I walked right up to it but saw nothing but long grass. Had a poke around plenty of other jungle too. Oh well better than that epic ski trek up Cnoc an t-Sabhail!
