Hydrographic survey station, Ploc an Rubha, Ross And Cromarty
This hydrographic survey station is located approximately 20m SW of the OS triangulation pillar marked on the map and lies on the edge of a former anti-aircraft gun emplacement. Unlike other hydrographic survey stations nearby (eg NG8189 : Hydrographic trig pillar, Ru Na Gavern) the plate is not mounted on a pillar, but on concrete directly onto a rock.

The plate shows that it was installed from Seaward Defence Motor Launch 3516 in May 1957. SDML 3516 was previously designated as HDML 1387 and was used to mark a channel which had been cleared of mines on D-day. She was later named HMS Medusa. She has been preserved, is still seaworthy and is shown in TQ2777 : Diamond Jubilee Pageant - ML137 HMS Medusa.
