Low tide today would still have meant getting wet to access Middle Craig. Will return when tide and weather provide a more favourable combination. Certainly no sign of a beacon though. Got as close as 95m according to the GPS. Destroyed August 1958 according to the OS. More information available here: http://www.geograph.org.uk/search.php?i=30790677
