Managed to haul myself up onto roof to view carved markings. Foula visible above slight sea mist. Breezy day so didn't stay around long.

OS trig database states "ROOF STATION APPROX 3M ABOVE GL". So, taking my trusty telescopic ladder along I walked the 300m from the road to the WWII concrete building that martine41 had been next to. I climbed gingerly onto the roof to see what I could find. Apart from several incongruous stones scattered on the top, lo and behold, in the centre of the roof there is a depression in the surface next to an embossed benchmark symbol. No sign of a rivet but it must have been here. Follow in my steps at your own risk etc. Nice outlook from the rooftop - Foula visible once again shrouded in cloud!

The location has a number of WW2 buildings. Despite my Satmap GPS logging grid reference accuracies of between 6' and 13', no evidence of a rivet was found. The area is on high ground and gives good views in most relevant directions except where blocked by adjacent WW2 building.
Location of logged grid reference According to my GPS the grid ref is by the near left hand corner of the building
Location of logged grid reference. Logged grid ref according to my GPS is just to the right of the far corner of the building.
