A sunday drive in on forestry roads, 3 of 7 trees to the west have been clearfelled only last 150m into the trees now, visited 3 areas spot height, outcrop, and small rise in clearell area.robertphillips29/01/2023
Trackside parking (NX 5939 6944). Break running ESE very poor ground. Took to the trees at NX 6003 6922 for a bit of a beasting. Hit the 209m spot height, but no knowing if there's higher ground elsewhere. On the return discovered a nice big outcrop on the break at NX 6000 6921, that gave same elevation on the GPS... hmmm.jonglew21/02/2021
4th top of 9 today,1st Craiglowrie(2nd ascent) with Adrian then Cairn Tammock and Rig of Burnfoot solo taking track that skirts Loch Skerrow then up through deep heather outcrops and patches of intense brambles (why i didnt walk a bit further to the ride was probably due to impatience). Then cut across to immature plantings although easier access than Rig of Burnfoot. After the usual circling to home in on the summit i returned to the track and the long way back to the junction, meeting Adrian halfway back en-route. We veered off for Laughenghie hill, one that we would never forget!Dazingdale17/10/2018
