OS Benchmark? Directional arrow? (Expand pics)
Mystery object on the Galtees?
I took this photo 2 weeks ago (May 08) of this marker stone which is located in the saddle to the East of Galtybeg (R89476 24164) next to a stump of a wooden post. I was told before that it was an old benchmark from the time when the Ordnance Survey first mapped the country. It is basically 3 small arrows which have been cut into the rock to form an arrow. Is it a benchmark? Is it a directional arrow showing North? How old? I wonder if anyone else knows anything about this object or perhaps have seen similiar objects on other mountains?

A small hill, but as it can form part of an extended walk, has some very steep sides, and has some of the best views in the country, it cannot be judged by size alone. I started at the car park at...
