Altitude recorded as 50m. Path still very clear to this FBM.

I Like FBM's. The wee hut on the northbound side of the road is the key to finding this one. High nettles needed to be waded through but my path should make the visit easier...for a day or two! In good condition.

Not easy to spot. Once I found the entrance to the hidden hut and consulted previous photos, I was able to line myself up and found I was almost standing on top of it!

Luckily had studied previous logs before going as this was well hidden in the bracken and brambles - the rest of the party thought I had imagined the references to a concrete hut as it had been completely engulfed by the undergrowth!

in the bracken, in front of the entrance to the wee hut.

Took a few minutes to find even though the bracken has died back

Easily spotted in front of the concrete hut. Convenient layby nearby.

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!
