I found it very difficult to find, but easy once you know where it is! Bit of a strange setup, pillar surrounded by wooden fencing with an electrical distribution board and light within it. I imagine satanic rituals were once carried out here, hopefully I haven't been cursed!

Within the remains of an old shed, good condition but covered in moss. Retains its original OS cap on the spider

Thanks to the owners of the house for pointing me in the direction. I wouldn't have bothered them if I hadn't seen them in the garden. Woodland on the trig side of the house is very easy to negotiate. Wooden hut has sighting holes / windows towards Faslane Base.

Good parking at NS 2314 8861, then wandered along the road and took peregrinus' route up, no need to bother the good people at the house, besides it was tipping it down this afternoon and I was quite wet. Ground steep and slippery in the woods. Wooden hut further up, and away from the house/grounds than I thought - door is unsecured. Pillar very mossy, original centre cap retained, raised lettering; front sight hole open, others not checked. An oddity, is it even OSGB36? Needless to say, no views.

As described below this pillar sits about 20m north west of the north west corner of Loch Na Brae House. As the new owners of Loch Na Brae, we are very excited to know that we have our "own" trig point! If you come for a hunt, please stick a note through the door or say hello and we might make you a cup of tea!

Leaves covering the spider and frozen in place. Didn't bother chipping away at them. Still very mossy.

Vgc, although very mossy, pillar located inside a timber shed! Decided to not follow Rob's splendidly accurate instructions and looped round the house from the convenient parking to the south. Eaten alive by midges and annoying trudge over dried brash. So, just follow Rob's instructions, it's much easier. FB faces E-ish with the same sighthole open only. Cap present with raised lettering. No real views today due to dense foliage. The enclosure is actually mapped at 1:25000 being the little square to the north of the mapped wall forming the north wall of Loch-na-Brae's garden.

vgc, top cap with unusually small neat raised lettering. In timber enclosure, just N of burn, with a view of sorts thru trees to Faslane. I asked at house but no need - its well outside the garden. Start to R (N) of house, climb thru open woodland, cant miss it. My Etrex HCx was reading to 8m - some tree felling needed to improve much on it I suspect.

Not mapped or listed. With only a flush bracket number and a name to go on, we spoke to the owner of Loch-na-Brae. After describing what we were looking for, it transpired that his young sons had found the pillar in the woods above their house some three years earlier. Thomas and Josh very kindly led us to their pillar. The pillar has been in a secured wooden compound with viewing windows to the east, overlooking Faslane Port which is on the opposite side of Gare Loch. There has been an electrical supply and an overhead lamp is still in situ. The pillar is in good condition and has moss coverage due to the wooded surroundings. Spider retains OS centre cap with raised lettering. Front sight hole open, others plugged. Flush bracket faces ~90, east. Many thanks again to Thomas and Josh, also to Rod Sladen who had associated FB No.11177 with Loch-na-Brae following his research at OSHQ. GPS Grid Ref is 21m due to tree coverage. The pillar site is on a slope, not a summit.
