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

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
