Very windy but dry. No one on the golf course. Battled our way across to the indicated heather summit and started stabbing. GPS was a bit vague and most of our test digs were in the trees and bushes. After an hour - nothing. Moved out of the trees into the heather and kept going. Eventually stabbed through to a flat bit of rock, dug another hole and there it was. Very large bolt with dimple. Covered back over after readings and photos to protect the bolt. With CJ.

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...
