Revisit with Trigging on an island. Heading for the door of the half buried building more or less tripped over it 5m back from road.

Glad that I was with someone who knew where it was. Note that it is on the northward side of the road.

Found it. Lost in a sea of head high nettles. Took two GPS searches as I returned to car to close the windows realising this wasn't a two minute job. Returned to find I must have been standing on it during my first search, going by the freshly flattened nettles.

Hmmm - I did find the concrete base but had no luck with the FBM itself. :-(

Helmsdale ..hiding on the slope. :-(

Sutherland. We could not find the FBM. The whole slope was covered in dense gorse and bracken and even the concrete hut was lost.

No sign of FBM or a concrete hut under ferocious looking gorse.

Took some finding in the thick bracken debris - then there it was!

There it is!
