Ben Lomond Trig Point Padlock(s)

The mystery deepens….

Roddy 2M0IOB had mentioned the padlock on his comment on my (June) Radio Days post.

I then trawled the ‘net looking for information, if any avaialble.

I found the first reference to it on the T:UK Trig Point site <HERE> 6th of August ’09 post.

On further inspection of photos on that site, I noticed a later post picture <HERE>, the padlock in this photo has rusted.

The Two Padlocks

The Two Padlocks

I spoke with Roddy on 2M FM and he mentioned that there were TWO padlocks on the trig point, I then had a quick check of my photo and yes, there was two , the original rusty padlock and  another, obviously a recent addition.  On the photo taken on June trip to the summit, the original padlock  and its twin <HERE>

Here is a close up photo taken from that photo, excuse the fuzziness

The plot thickens….

Can anyone throw any light on this ?

  1. Maybe if it didn’t have a padlock on it someone might steal the trig point, or possibly someone had their mountain bike chained to it and thieves cut the chain and left the lock? 2m0iob
