Yet another pillar has regained its cap; two sight-holes open in what is a damaged pillar. Accompanied to the top by an inquisitive pair of ravens, from time to time emitting that throaty 'kraa' sound. Wonderful.

Late afternoon walk over Meall Reamhar and on up to Meall nan Caorach. Didn't hang around as wind had got up and it was difficult to stand. Plug missing and chunks out of pillar.

With Dusty on good circular walk taking in 6 hills. Parked at wide farm entrance, good track past Girron farm before heading SW for Creag Liath and Meall Reamhar and then on to Meall nan Caorach (for which the OS has inserted an 'i' in the name). Windy and cold with horizontal snow flurries. Pillar is much fractured and has large chunk of concrete missing from one top corner exposing a spider arm. Cap missing, no plug; RHD side sight hole open. Extensive 360deg panorama.

Room for one car at start of track to Girron. Up to Creag Ghorm, round to Meall nan Caorach and Meall Reamhar. Loose wire from repaired fences a tripping hazard on this circuit.

Largeish chunk missing from top. No cap or plug. Grass and heather summit. Also visited the Graham Top just to the N. The obvious approach via Girron.
