HISTORY: Pillar completed 9th October 1953 costing £19.0s.0d. Computed as tertiary triangulation station NH54/T34 in 1955. Levelled for height in 1956. Last maintained by the OS in June 1976. SITE VISIT: Parked in wide forest entrance, NW side of unclassified road at NH510280. Followed muddy path along NW edge of woods then southwards up heathery ground east of woods. Returned taking a more direct route through the woods which was the easier option. Pillar in mature wood which has protected it from the elements and preserved it in good condition. Spider centre open. Flush bracket faces WNW, ~293°. Vented through NE sight hole. Surrounded by spaced conifers, therefore no view. Nice location though.

Bus from Drumnadrochit to Invermoriston then walked back on Great Glen Way with diversion from Woodend to trig. Trig within forested area on mound. Cleared coating of moss from it.

A beautifully serene location when I found it. Lovely warm day and an easy bouncy walk in from the Great Glen Way path, along peaty paths. Fence is falling over so no access problems, easy to spot the highpoint on which its located and trig is easily found amongst the trees. Becoming mostly moss covered, nature is taking over. Missing plug on spider, but otherwise fine condition.

Inverness-shire. Plug missing. Very mossy trig hidden in the trees. A very secluded location.

Went up the steep side ( by the pony treking establishent). Very steep climb and GPS gave a little bother at the summit due to many trees. Trig covered in moss but in good condition appart from that. Managed to get a little erm lost on the way back. But was all good.

Walk-in today was very wet as erosion on the path has created many large puddles and boggy areas. Trig itself is off the path and hidden in trees on a small crest. GPS found it no bother. A bit moss-covered and the FB had to be cleared before I could photograph it.

In trees - no view. Plenty of snow today but may be best done in frosty/drought conditions.
