From north end of Croy up marked path. Grid ref app put me to exact coordinates but nothing visible. Poked around with sticks but it must be buried amongst the gorse detritus. Need to return with spade, angle loppers and trig bagging screwdriver. Photos on site didn't help unfortunately. Disappointed.

Exact spot but no bolt found. :(

Used the easy parking at Croy, nr Chillies take-away and the car wash then used the signed path to get close to the summit with only one fence and some gorse to negociate to find the summit and the OS bolt.

My GPS unit gave me the same grid-reference as the previous logger for this bolt. This grid-ref is different to the one at the top of the TP page. I approached this one from the Forestry Commission car-park on the north-east side of the hill between Dullatur and Kilsyth ("Nethercroy" on the FC sign-post). I've actually been up and down Croy Hill many times before, usually from the Auchinstarry side and didn't realise that this bolt was hidden away in the gorse bushes on one of the hills many tops. I gave this one 6/10 but if it had been scored for the nice views or the other features of this nice wee hill then it could have easily been closer to 10/10.

45 min round strip from Croy Station Car park, following the vague trail down through the new sports centre and parallel to the railway to get round the quarry and approach from the far side. Bolt exposed, well oxidised, on bedrock near top of hill. Decent views, came back down the easy way through Croy.
