1 1/2" domed bolt found cemented into bed rock beneath summit cairn. 3 witness rivets located, each a metre or so roughly W, NE & NW of the bolt. Summit cairn rebuilt as a doughnut with bolt just remaining visible.

found 3 rivets (witness marks) in a triangle around the cairn (N W SE) but no bolt. Rain n cold wind, here for the north top, descended east then back via 4 coastal p30s. Foul weather later, glad I got up the big ones first. Subsequently spoke to Alex who agreed it was probably rivet he found.

Started the day at the bothy at Usinish. Heaved my rucksack up to the top of the glen and then made my way northeastwards to the summit. The bolt was easy to find on a rock near to the cairn. The views were far ranging and the wind was scarcely noticeable. Mountains of Harris, Skye and Rum Cuillen, Beinn Mhor, Hirta and Boreray out to sea, all easy to spot. The only thing missing was Barra, which gives an excuse to explore the intervening hills further south another time.
