Third visit, nearly 16 years after last. Snowbound summit on a clear day with no wind. Pillar still in good condition.

Good condition pillar atop Cat Law. Easy walk up the mapped track. No views from the top thanks to low cloud coverage. FB faces west-ish with south-ish sighthole open only. Cap missing and no plug. Plinth is a bit eroded.

Last Saturday I went to watch Kirriemuir Thistle only to find that the match was postponed (frozen pitch). Instead I decided to climb what I thought was Cat Law (forgotten my map), but this was bad guesswork, because I climbed Long Goat which was fun, but no trigpoint. So today I made amends and climbed the wonderful, wintry, snowy landscape which was definitely Cat Law. Saw a surprised white hare in glorious close-up near the summit which was covered in dense mist. Managed to locate the pillar: ice-enshrouded, open cap, all four sight-holes closed. Such an enjoyable winter's walk.

started up through the ornamental gates, but descended direct to the nearby farm with the huge corrugated round barns- much more direct.

vgc, no cap or plug. From SW, track obscure at first, but obvious once beyond the tree belt.

Great viewpoint, this being the highest gill on the Highland Fault. One side a wild snowy Mounth, the other The Mearns and Strathmore, very flat looking. Could see as far south as The Lomonds. Pillar good, save a lost plug, no replacement. Just south of the unmarked summit. Hid from the savage wind behind a cairn nearby.

Second visit, two weeks on from the first. A windier day but much clearer. Montrose Basin and Steeple could be seen out to the east.

Graham no.2. Up from the south-west at Balintore. A prominent feature from Strathmore albeit a peaty heap up at the summit, but excellent views all round if a little hazy.

No details noted - pleasant hill, ancient cairn, good descent off Peat Shank, via burn to W Lednathie
