Up to the top by way of tracks. Loved the old grassed bridge en route. Pillar has its cap in place with deep indented lettering, 2 s/h's open, and is set within its stony 'den'. Apparently, at 2293 ft, this hill is the 2004th highest in Scotland. I needed to tell somebody.

Walked from A939 west initially on Old Military Road then south and west. Pillar has low corral of rocks all round. Very good views all the way to the trig. Red Grouse and Golden Plover on way up. Pillar is perhaps surprisingly for location in excellent condition and still retains plug, large deep indented lettering.

Intact on a slabby tor with fine views of Strath Don. Being at the far eastern reaches makes no odds, this is a good no nonsense Monadh Ruadh hill. Strange goings on... Two men acting furtively. They moved away and once I was safely on my way returned. They were interested in the rocks and were discussing 10 fig grid refs. I suspect - Geocachers... Will check back here and see if I was right. I doubt it was Mr Alain Quy. No cache... What was going on

Traditional trig in a circle of stones not high enough for shelter. Top intact.
