Sutherland. Beside Loch Shin on A838. Coordinates from Google Earth (I don't have a dash board thingy). Much larger parking area than as currently shown on Google. Very quiet, level, firm ground.
58.04 03 30"N 4.27 11 10"W

tried the given co-ordinates in google maps -seem to be way off the mark -but when transiting the A838 in street view
there are a couple of large lay-bye's created for forestry operations such as the one here.
58.065522,-4.450005.

Sorry if coordinates aren't right, I don't have GPS & I'm new to using Google Earth - I probably didn't zoom in eneough on the Earth picture, I just read the co-ords as shown on screen.

Is this the place?

If so, your coordinates are correct ...

Can anyone confirm that the "lay by" still looks like this? We will be venturing along that way in a few weeks and I have my eye on it as a stop for lunch (forestry works permitting) !
