I parked just inside the field, to the side of the track, NO338158. Up track to The Mount, following SRoWS signs to the Monument along subsequent flooded tracks which doubled as streams. At sharp R bend, with rusty old gate ahead, there were no useful signs - guessed it was through wooden gate on L as there was no sight of a monument - after 50m, tower loomed out of the mist - guess was correct. No view in the horizontal rain.Isbjorn24/06/2019

By waymarked route on way up to Forfar for Christmas with my sister. Drizzle.SS25/12/2017
Something of a disappointment given its prominence. Muddy track, no interpretation, forestry works. The people of Cupar who built it will be spinning in their collective graves.summitter25/11/2017
The usual route via the signed track. Snuck in and parked in the field entrance alongside the track. The track winds around a bit up the hill, eventually arriving at the somewhat hideous monument. A bit of a smoky walk, due to chaps burning stuff after tree harvesting operations.Gill09/11/2017

Great walk up to trig, fully pathed all the way up. Once up there there is the Hopetoun monument which is quite spectacularthejackrustles05/04/2017
2nd Ma of 4 today. From the Mount, to the tower, walking on the tracks round the hill as the 'official route' was messy with tree felling. Gate in deer fence gave access to summit. Between showers- very clear away from the showers.pwheeler21/03/2017
With MN route etc as kdbennett. Path muddy due to forestry work. Interesting monumenttrimarc208/12/2016
Signposted from road at SE. Summit enclosed by new deer fence, access by gate at W sidekdbennett27/11/2016
Marked route from the SE. The route is well marked unlike the monument that does not say what it is there for. Apparently it was erected to honour John Hope who was a hero in the Peninsular War.clivevilla08/10/2016

With Jenx from south. Marked path all the way. 40 minutes round trip. Impressive monument, albeit raised by local serfs to honour their landlord.nordicstar30/11/2015

From east on dry clear day. Met a man and family who had a key to the tower which certainly improved the view. This was the 6th time the tower had been open since October 2008. Very dark and narrow on way up....Dugswell206/08/2009
