Yeh, that's not happening! Beautiful evening in one of my favourite Highland villages.

No sign, whole area covered with heather and moss. Found a spot where it could have been but no sign now. Definitely missing.

An email conversation with the golf club secretary a couple of weeks before my trip to Mull revealed that the bolt is not believed to exist any more. Despite this I turned up there on a wet Bank Holiday morning, bagging the FBM first (TP0490) and then wandering off across the deserted course in search of the bolt. My GPS led me to the middle of a large patch of heather and a small (18in square) exposed rock. I would tend to agree with peregrinus - this seems the only place a bolt could be unless the real location has been completely covered with heather. However there appears to be no sign of where a bolt might have been lodged in the rock. Very limited views - mainly due to weather - and I got soggy trousers from wading through the sodden heather.

Gps took me to rock outcrop in heather with 2 stones that looked like markers. No bolt though, maybe I had the wrong place. 2nd opinion sought...
