Dornie fundamental bench mark
Dornie fundamental bench mark
One of around 200 fundamental bench marks in Great Britain that record height above AMSL (Newlyn Datum) with great accuracy. This one is at a height of 53.7770m. The 'business end' of the thing is a bolt set in the bedrock in an underground chamber below the granite pillar seen here. The original Ordnance Survey Bench Mark plaque has above it a more modern plate, dated July 1999, which describes its function and importance.
