Second visit, 23 years after the first. Up the track on the north side. The higher summits to the north and west under cloud.Windy Corner01/08/2019

A quick up and down views were ok could have been betterNozzer15/06/2019
From just outside Cray at Perthshire/Angus border, straight up. Cloud on top so couldn't see the 40+Munro suggested by the interesting troposcope. On to Duchray hill.MichaelF18/05/2019
Straightforward solo walk from the Church at Cray using the SMC Corbetts route. Over heather and short turf with a good track towards the top. Sunny calm day. Great toposcope marred by the telecommunications tower. 1 1/2 hoursalexmaclennan09/04/2019
From B951 summit, via Creag na Cuigeil, a way suggested in the SMC guide to the Grahams. This had an ATV track, then little paths that could easily be lost in burned areas, all the way to the summit. With the standard route down, it gave an interesting circuit. Views were long- as far as the Moorfoot Hills. Cloudy, but base about 3700 ft, much lower to the W. With Pete. Continued to Mealne Letter.pwheeler26/03/2019
A short walk to make the most of indifferent weather. From the road over the col to the summit by the track and back. A superb viewpoint, with 44 Munros visible on a clear day according to the summit viewfinder. I saw none, sadly, but was compensated by sun through the cloud turning the flanks of nearby hills golden-green, and the Spittal of Glenshee's verdant green picked out by the light so that it looked like Rivendell.Nick Down123/09/2017

After completing Badanan, Monanmenach and Mealne Letter decided to test the legs or tell them to shut up on the way up. Parked at forest, up through gate to summit. Actually best views of the day from here. Shame about mast. Cairn informative. Company: Soloiandesbottes17/05/2017

Alone, on way home from Langie Glenshee meet. Circular route coming back via Cray.Grinner19/02/2017
Whilst walking the cateran trail. Good path all the way up. Excellent views from the summit.Stevend123/04/2016
2 in same day. Badandun Hill NO 207678 S/F NO 189684 and Mount Blair NO 167629 S/F NO 155642. Sunny day but cool, high broken cloud giving great views all day. Mount Blair must be one of the best viewpoints in Scotland despite its low height. Combined ascent of about 900 m, a typical Munro but was very tired by second sumit and knees aching on discent. Getting on a bit, need to get fiter again.John Young01/04/2016
Weather fair.MountainMac20/10/2015
With the club. Csilla, Gary, Iain P and Graeme on a wet and foggy day. Tip don't do it from Blacklunans. Horribly boggy in places. Iain and graeme went on to do Duchray Hill.tallblond11/10/2015

W Jenx from road to north. Take the track to mast, parking opposite the gate for 1/2 cars. Steady if steep pull right to top, 40 mins, 20 mins back. Lot of clutter on top, but good trig (base crack right round!) and fantastic views, Schiehallion in the distance v clear)nordicstar28/06/2014

The path on the map from the B961 is slightly wrong. And the viewpoint symbol is completely misleading. I couldn't see anything - mind you, there was a hailstorm. And then sod's law really struck. After doing three hills in constant rain by the time I got to the bottom of this one there wasn't a cloud in the sky, but as it was dusk it was too late to bag anything else.Martin R20/11/2012

Solo trip; have been several times sinceInvicta1426/02/1999
Burns Supper at Muir Cottage (Carngorm Club hut). Solo. I drove over to Glen Shee and the B951 road. I walked to the summit of Mount Blair from a point immediately east of woods. I returned to the road further east, crossed the road and continued to the summit of Mealna Letter also known as Duchray Hill passing over Carn Derig.pwbellarby23/01/1999
Graham No 1. From Altaltan up the east side. Steep at first amongst a few crags, then levelling out before climb to summit. A clear evening although too hazy to see any great distance.Windy Corner31/07/1996
