Parking and route as Clochandighter. Really scenic spot. Above Culblean Hill seemed to be the release area from the towing planes for the gliders from the local Deeside Gliding Centre. I was surprised how many there were.

Spider retains OS centre cap with deep indented letters. Flush bracket faces 172 south. Vented through north sight hole. Whilst well down from summit the site still enjoys a panoama of overtopping skylines. Northern aspect partly interrupted by random conifers.

vgc, metal cap, wide raised letters. Hot toilsome heathery ascent from ENE. Extensive hazy view.
