Parked in the Seal Sanctuary, nipped across the the road to climb a small hill... tough going over dead trees and bracken then through a small copse. 4ft Trig lost in 5ft bracken, good condition.

Moss covered to half height which I unfortunately had to remove to find the FB. Another nasty slog up thru thick plantations for the last wee bit but otherwise I think I found quite a canny route. Rough terrain although not too far. No views from trig, which has a wee bit of partly repaired frost damage to top face. Embossed rather than engraved lettering to spider cap. First time I've seen this (and noticed!).

A First Find! No wonder........©sky high boys
