Had to resort to dropping down to Gourock and seeking out WiFi to bring up previous logs. Turns out I was right there to begin with but missed it hidden under the bush. Cleared it back a little bit for the next person trying to find it.

Followed Aquamans directions which are spot on. It's totally covered in moss so quite trick to notice straight away.

Log #218. Took ages to find this one, the moss made it very difficult and I must have walked straight past it a few times. From the path, there should be a bit of a clearing - head down here and look for the rusted metal fence. There is a section that has fallen, roughly 10m west of the trig. After going over the toppled fence, hang a right and look for a large bush. The FBM is under this, but is very well-hidden by moss. Looks to be in good condition, with no height-tag.

Battled through undergrowth to this one, finding it camouflaged under a rhododendron bush. No height tag. Approx 15m to the west of the recently installed wooden, slatted garden fence, Marking boundary to properties below

Walked down from the tower, right along the surfaced path for about 20m then down again through small trees to cross the metal fence where it has fallen. Turned right below the fenceline and found the FBM without too much of a struggle

Pig of a location, not content with getting beaten up by overgrown rhododendron, bramble and fern (yes even the fern got us somehow), but the filthy midges gave myself and Mrs G a good working over also. This took some finding, GPS was useless - clue: it's on the downhill side of the metal fencing. Looked to be in good condition; blank height tag. We didn't stick around long enough to even clear the moss. Horrible place!

Hard to find FBM even with previous photos. Thick vegetation even in winter.

Good condition FBM with missing height plaque. Covered in moss, but quite easy to find with current vegetation levels. Iain's pics (the famed "lonely pine") made it easy to locate despite GPS being way out due to tree cover. Nice views (although better from the top of the hill....)

2nd time lucky, found easily using Iainmac pics although I only had a rough GR with me. Just inside felled fenced area - 1m NW of S corner. Was covered by bracken: trod on it. GPS was reading to 10m due to nearby tree cover, average of 3 readings (within +/-1m of each other) was NS 23973 77485.

Revisit during Royal Wedding 29-4-11 Up from my Pal Alans back garden.. very thorny this time o year! No height tag and covered in moss with the original ORDNANCE SURVEY BENCHMARK plaque opposite the 1999 one. Luvly view halfed by Iains lonesome pine... a nice marker to help find the cute wee beastie! :)

Gourock ...mossy :)

Found it first time. Not in undergrowth at present (winter) and relatively easy to locate thanks to the fencing and lone pine in iainmac's photos.

Found at second attempt, with OS sketch, not without some difficulty. GPS plate, blank height tab. See from the photos what it looked like before and after pruning. Was actually announcing to my son - This sketch doesn't make any sense - when I put my foot down on a log - which wasn't a log, but the FBM, totally covered with ivy & brambles. How we laughed...

Spent a lot of time in the rhododendrons and felled bits, and must have almost tripped over it. But i missed.
