Located in woods a few metres behind Benmore Farm. Knocking at the farmhouse didn't produce a response so as the FBM can be seem from the garden, walked through the gate and bagged it. Seems to be in good condition, but covered with moss. Height tag is in place, but no height stamped on it!

Came round back way from Ben More hill track, took a bit of finding in long grass - closer to gate than expected. Nobody around, so nicked back down main drive.
