This summit is also a Tump, which was the reason for today’s visit. The top has been completely cleared, including the water tank. I spoke to the householder of the nearby house and learned that a local contractor had been hired to demolish the tank. She thought it was instigated by Historic Scotland who wanted to recover the site for its historical significance. If the bolt was like the one that sits on top of the water tank at nearby Fisherton Resr, it is to be presumed that this bolt is therefore gone.

Have changed this from 'destroyed' to 'unknown'. The whole top of Cromal Mount is highly vegetated with the ground covered with a thick layer of dead bracken etc. Likely the top of the resr is there, and the bolt also.

Impossible to find in thick vegetation. Excellent walk from Ardersier to Fort George with great views of Kessock Bridge and entry to Beauly Firth.

Thrashed my way in to the whin covered mount where the GPS said the bolt should be. Lots of thick vegetation meant I had no chance. I managed to find a report on the archeological investigation of the site in 1973 which mentions the site has been "mutilated" by a concrete water tank. I suspect the bolt to be on this tank but it is now well buried.
