Good condition 15th May 2019  15:02  by BigJ

Parked at the beach. Very hot airless day so decided against the frontal approach and headed up the marked forestry track to the east to where the pylons go up the hill. The theory is that there’s always a track alongside the pylons. Well I got that wrong. Big time. Floundered up the slope beside the pylons keeping near the trees for shade. Once on top turned SW and made for the GPS location. As shown by jonglew, the location is a featureless flat heathery ridge. Began probing and only found one spot where the screwdriver hit stone. Started digging and pulling out stones, but no luck. Tried 12” away and more stones. However, one of them had white paint on it. Bingo. Kept going, digging out the peat and the stones, to be rewarded with a concrete block with a 1/4” rod protruding from it. Not an easy find! After readings and photos, placed the excavated stones as a small protective cairn over the rod. Direct descent back to the car for water.

Straight up from beach car park due south; one deer fence to cross. Springy heather. Spent a while probing the ground, only 1 hit; dug down approx one foot to find a nice flat rock approx size of a surface block.... grrrr. Nothing else even close. Fine views over Kyle Rhea and onto Skye.
