Found whilst getting the geocache. Lot of vandalism on the pillar here. Must be one of the more popular hills in the area.

Someone's had a go at removing the FB, with no success. No cap or plug. Fair bit of graffiti. In circular shelter cairn. In cloud, cold wind. Path from S, diverting W for the HuMP on the way out and E for the SubHuMP on the way back. Convenient parking in layby by the church ruins.

Corbett no.24. Starting at Balhennie it wasn`t an enticing prospect. Heavy drizzle and a brooding black heathery hillside awaited. Along the A97 on the way a brief gap in the clag showed that there was snow somewhere up there as well. But once started the rain eased and the cloud gradually lifted. The snow line was reached after the initial first rise but it was only a few inches deep and a line of fence posts pointed the way to the summit cairn and trig. These were covered in frozen snow

HISTORY: Pillar completed 21st April 1956 costing 60.16s.2d. Computed as secondary triangulation station NJ40/13 within the Ballater block during 1956. Levelled for height also in 1956. Last maintained by the OS in July 1978. SITE VISIT: Parked on wide area by end of public road at NJ409044. Followed track via Balhennie then onto open hill. There is an unmapped path straight up the east side or a longer path round via the southern slope. Pillar in fair condition but somebody has had a failed attempt at the FB. Spider centre open. Flush bracket face 248 WSW. Originally vented through the SE sight hole, the SW hole has been broken open and the NE one is starting to open. 360 panoramic view.

Graffiti still visible, but the weather is doing its trick. Theres a few chunks out of the sides and someone has had a go at the bottom of the FB. Arguably slightly damaged, but not too bad. Blowin a hooly up there today!
