|1st top with L on a 5 hour circuit from lovely Forest of Birse with its neat small castle owned by another C Pearson - sadly not me, but Charles Pearson - Viscount Cowdry who has several such properties in this part of Aberdeenshire - this being used for grouse shooting parties - hence the extensive landrover tracks up onto the grouse moors - (and the rows of waiting hooks in the freshly painted outhouse). Charles is the younger brother of Michael Pearson - also Viscount Cowdry who owns the Cowdry estate in West Sussex - famous as a polo venue. Today breezy but shorts possible even just walking (as letting my calf muscle recover). Saw no one - Viscounts or otherwise despite being a sunday.||Chris Pearson||22/09/2019|

|A long west to east round from Birse castle via all Graham tops from Gannoch to Peter Hill plus Baudnacauner. Quite a lost of track so speedy going. teeming with mountain hares which looked very conspicuous in the absence of snow.||dickscroop||19/02/2017|
|Solo. Done with Cairny Hill and Tampie. Deteriorating weather so abandoned attempt on other tops and walked back to my starting point of Tarfside on Firmounth Road on which a lot of recent work has been done. The summit of Gannoch can be reached from Firmounth Road on a little used track which avoids having to trample through the heather. Cairn with stake is clearly the highest point even if the summit area is rather flat.||pwbellarby||01/08/2015|
