Found whilst on a tour of Scotland. Just spotted it, inbetween the fencing.

There's a handy lay-by about 35 metres or so from the benchmark, which is located at the back edge of someone's garden. Peeked through the fence slats to get a picture, but didn't hang about any longer. The road is a dead-end, by the way. Don't make the same mistake I did and try and follow it back to the main road.

Rather too early in the day to go calling, but FBM easily inspected and photographed through the garden fence!

At the top edge of private back garden behind wooden fence. 51 Swanston Avenue, Inverness. Householder seems to be looking after FBM which sits nicely beside garden bench. Nobody at home when called, but camera lens peeked through fence.
