Good roadside parking for 5 to 6 cars on B977 south of Echt between Newfield and Tillyshogle. Walked through the obvious forestry entrance and followed the path (only shown on the 1:25000) all the way to the pillar. Good clear views all round . Even spotted an old BM on the rock next to the trig. With Nozzer.

Was out looking for a geocaching in the area and thought I would check on this Trig. Great Views for the surrounding area.

Walked up the path from near Echt with my daughter on a very squelchy day.

Parked on the B977 by Newfield Farm then via Landerberry Burn to Greymore and back via Meikle Tap. A clear but grey day.

Network of shallow cracks, maybe just the old whitewash. No cap or plug. Heathery summit, Rough but clear path from ENE, a surprise as not marked on my LR38.

Not a bad view, really... A shame about all the nearby logging, though.

Being powerful, apparently... ©Peripatetic
