Short stroll from Camera Obscura CP to W, breaking up journey home from Aberdeenshire Mega 2019. Pleasant to be out in ordinary rain rather than recent deluges.

A short almost walk from the north. Trees obscuring a lot of the view but decent to the SE.

Very difficult to find among the undergrowth on the hill, but finally found just south of the big stone. Only views are southerly, but a fine vista of Strathmore.

Pillar, looking south over Strathmore

Surprising views afterit took us a while to locate the pillar. Not as easy as a hill top trig pillar

P101. A lovely straightforward walk along good tracks in an interesting location.

Easy walk up from the camera obscura car park. Great views over the snow-covered valley to the south.

Easy approach from the north, up track from interpretation board to the standing stone. Can see trig from there & clear path leads to it, tho not quite directly

Delightful visit in the snow, and luckily found the pillar instantly. Good condition, no cap,and slightly surprised that it wasn't in a more prominent position. Interested to be in Kirriemuir for the first time as it's the birthplace of JM Barrie, and perhaps just a little more importantly also the birthplace of one Bon Scott. What a Whole Lotta Rosie! Must get back here to watch Kirriemuir Thistle play.

Easy one this - lots of footpaths around this area. Nice views.

nearly gave this one up, well hidden from the main track but accessible from one nearer the edge. Walked in from S around edge of cliff then up to corner of fenced area, N approach easier but parking less clever, nice views

spent quite some time wandering around in the trees and bushes but couldn't find it even when I persuaded two local dog walkers to help who had lived in the town over twenty years and had never known of it. re-visited on 19/05/2012 and found it. tgoc2012.

Is this the same trig I saw a few years ago? So overgrown! Left the GPS in the car by accident, and had to search for the pillar in dense undergrowth. Battered and trod down the vegetation before photography. Back sighting hole open, front opening, others plugged.

Visited in a snowstorm. An easy one, partly hidden by broom. Good condition, plug now replaced by bitumen type filler. On the edge of a quarry, but could see nothing but falling snow.

Trig pillar in good condition. Spider has lost its OS centre plug leaving the centre tube open. The FB is on the north side of the pillar. Visited and photographed 22/09/1998, GRP.

S7053 - Hill Of Kirriemuir. TP & FB. Looking down on the background clouds, a very foggy day indeed.
