Small outcrop beyond the compound.Play2End01/11/2016
From Middle Drums. Complicated due to quarrying. Visited 3 contenders but plumped for the one just W of where the track turns N.chrisbien20/02/2016
Out on the bike from Forfar. The summit is above the quarry somewhat to the west of the telecommunications station. A track leads most of the way, but the last bit could be fun in Summer. Another track leads most of the way past a reservoir to the much lower triangulation pillar.fasgadh23/01/2015
