Co-ordinate trouble in ArcMap

I have added a series of Co-ordinates into ArcMap from an excel workbook and the import fine without any trouble, however when added a basemap check the were in the correct place, they are appearing in the middle of the sea off the coast of Newquay when they should be the other end of the country in Orkney off the coast of Scotland. The co-ordinates were added as british national grid so I projected them to WGS  to see if the would be the problem but they just move about an inch to the left so no luck.. however when you input the co-ordinates into google earth they are appearing in the right place?

 

Any help would be much appreciated!
