Circuit of trigs (G, P, F, E, H). From G you can clearly see P on the hill opposite but you can also see you have to drop to the track and ascend back up again. The descent was easy but the slog up the hill on the other side from N57 09.367' W4 42.178' was over tough tussocky ground, which looked dry but had big bog holes through it and every step was an effort as you didn't make much progress, also no shade so it was very hot, we sat for a while at a rocky crag (N57 09.524' W4 42.148') to try and get some shade and then tried to follow the rocky bands of ground to make progress easier to the trigpoint. Fantastic views to Fort A.

Easy walk from Station G. Trig is on ridge between two halves of Balantoul Burn, just above a small crag. Open views in all directions. Large flake missing from top, and salt-encrusted cracks down sides. No flush bracket, and no sighting holes either.

Straight up from Project G. A few cracks to be seen on trig. Overall ok though. Fantastic views looking south. Well worth the visit. :)

Effectively a cylindrical pillar (Vanessa) built without FB, built onto square plinth which is cast directly onto stone outcrop. Some shallow cracking to pillar. Spider has the double triangle and cross markings common to the GG Project (also some scratched initials). Fine view. Route to Station G involves some seriously bad ground, although there is a new forest road from E.

GPSr NH 36709 10896. This pillar is different from anything previously encountered. Apparently known as a "Brander" (OS info), it appears to be a cylindical Vanessa style pillar built onto a concrete block. Whether it was originally like this or the pillar was added to the block at a later date is uncertain, the concrete in the two parts differ. The spider is plugged with the familiar coarse granular substance. There is no flush bracket, and never has been. There are no horizontal sighting holes, so probably no pillar bolt. 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.
