Picture: OS Benchmark? Directional arrow? (Contract 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?

Clomantagh Hill: The Kilkenny Burren.
TommyV less than an hour ago.
Eamonoc's directions are spot on on but there is an obvious track made by a tractor so following this will also take you close to the summit. It's a lovely little walk but very obviously on farmla...

Meikle Bin: Murky Scottish Hills

When you're surrounded by murk and mediocrity it doesn't take much to stand out.Meikle Bin is such a hill sitting in the more or less flat upland bog that make up most of the Campsie Hills.

A potentially brilliant mountain for walking destroyed by quadbikers; the summit cairn is surrounded by a sea of mud thanks to our considerate friends on 4 wheels. The col between Slievemaan and L...
