|Long walk up from Keith to Jocksleys, then on wet track to where it met the wind turbine road. Followed this up to the woodland edge before heading uphill parallel to woods over rough heath to TP at summit.||Buteobuteo||25/05/2019|
|Dry and grey walk up the wind farm track to bag Knockan then across the minor road to bag Hill of Towie, a P52 Tump and trig.||Dugswell2||11/06/2018|
|After Knockan. Reached area by train from Dufftown and a walk up road. Nice trig point but the wind farm and weather did not allow for many other positives||trimarc2||13/05/2018|
|Here for the trigpoint. TP:UK log:
Really surprised it's been nearly ten years since this one has been visited and a how much has changed since the last visit. Both sides of the hillside on either side of the road are now covered in wind turbines, the plus point being a very easy track to Turbine 21 and then 200m across the heather for an easy bag.||thejackrustles||08/02/2015|
