Fifth and final of five today doing a clockwise round of H, E, F, P, G. Lovely views down to Fort Augustus. Direct descent through jungle like bracken to the zig zags on the military road. With Nozzer.

Circuit of trigs (G, P, F, E, H) starting at a roadside parking spot at N57 08.865' W4 41.560', taking the track up to the signpost for the old military road N57 08.842' W4 41.850', then up the zig zag path to N57 09.006' W4 42.197' which is marked by a tall fencepost, we then headed straight up hill to the trigpoint. It felt very steep in the heat but it did have a sort of track and some shade. So glad to reach the trigpoint and then realised we'd passed the geocache on the way up!

I left Project H and heady for E. The snow was getting deeper and deeper the higher I got and then the black snow clouds I could see across on the other hills, caught up with me. I followed the military road past the cross roads and then reached a bridge with warning and stop signs as part of the wood had collapsed and was impassible. It was at this point I decided I wasn't equipped for a winter hill expedition and decided to retreat as snow was now nearly at my knees and I was talking an age to cover any distance. Got to the crossroads and went left this time to try and bag Project G. Walked along to the quarry and I could see Project P pillar on the skyline. I then headed across the snow and bog to Pillar G. Lovely views all around and I could spot some other trigs in amongst the clouds. This is the first time I have managed to see inside and spot the bolt. Trig covered in snow on one side which I had to remove to see the flush bracket. I then went downhill and ended up at the old fence posts and followed these until I arrived at the large old fence post at the military road and then a quick walk back to the car. A great but tough day.

Vanessa trig pillar out in open near summit of a small knoll. Followed old military road to top of zig-zags, then follow old fence (not on current Explorer map, but several fenceposts remain) up to near the pillar. Good condition with plugged spider, but open sighting holes.

Staying in Fort Augustus tonight, couple of hrs to myself. Plenty enough time but starting to notice the nights shorten......given the array of colours on view its a small price to pay. Best month of the year :)

Having successfully located GGP Stn H in the dense woodland nearby, I deviated from the return route to head for Stn G. I branched off the 'Old Military Road' path at NH 3614 0981 across deforested in a generally NE direction. The going was tough over dead wood, hidden sunken bits and then - after about 300m - tussocky thick grass as far as the pillar. Great view over Fort Augustus and the southern end of Loch Ness. Grid ref is average of 6 GPS readings over 40 minutes. Pillar details and photos to follow...

good climb up although tiring as fairly steep. Pillar in good condition. Can easily see Project P and Project F thanks to all the snow.

GPSr NH 36560 10057 6m. Cylindrical Vanessa style pillar in good condition. Spider centre plugged with coarse granular substance. All horizontal sight holes open, pillar bolt viewable. Flush bracket faces SW ~225. Follow the mapped tracks to NH363103 then head south across the very tossocky ground. The pillars at stations P and F are visible from G. Views to head of Loch Ness, along the Caledonian Canal, and to the hills on the opposite side of the Glen. Photographed 23/08/2007, GRP.
