Up here twice today.Morning dog walk with post flu L in determined plod mode, then in afternoon back out on my own with one dog (Junior) for 4 Tump round.Chris Pearson20/10/2019
I set my Suunto altimeter watch on the summit to the 146m recorded on OSM. The natural relevant col has most likely been removed during the construction of the man made Dunsapie Loch during the construction of Queens Drive which skirts around the western foot of the hill. I recorded a drop of exactly 30 metres to the new relevant col which I make to be on the car park to the south of Dunsapie Loch NT 28094 73031. The drop to the north of the loch I made to be 32 metres. My watch is not that accurate so more detailed survey suggested re Tump status. Seems unlikely to be the current p34 recoded on hb? Lidar has now proved it to be p31.6Chris Pearson18/10/2019
