Savage walk up Mount Keen in the wind and snow. Got there eventually, what a climb.

Trig Point: Mount Keen Covered in ice and snow so couldn't check number or condition. I'll maybe return in the summer when conditions are better.

A beautiful walk in via Glen Mark on a fine summer morning made the long drive up for the day worthwhile. Cooler on the summit but some good views over towards Lochnagar.

A great walk to the top of Mount Keen. I went for the geocache on top of Mount Keen and made a visit to the trigpoint as well. I have just submitted this trigpoint to waymarking.com as well.

Another Munro bagging day, only one summit today but as many trigs as yesterday for less than half the distance and ascent. In cloud all the way up but cleared as I had lunch on top to give views on the way back down.

vgc, no cap or plug (shallow crack around pillar at half height, maybe just a construction joint). 4 plugs drilled into side, suggesting a plaque has been removed. Fine rocky summit with pillar cast onto highest rocks. Standard ascent from Invermarkie, via Queens Well; 20 mi circuit via Fasheilach and Monawee- both of which were on Fiona Grahams original Grahams list based on distance from nearest higher ground. Excellent day out.

Parked at Invermark, NO 44663 80383. Followed track to Queens Well then diverted via Balnamoon's Cave (NO 39587 83260), crossed the Water of Mark and straight up the heather to the summit. Great day with good views.

The most Easterly Munro. Walked in from the head of Glen Esk and up Glen Mark past the Queens Well and over the Knowe of Crippley to the summit. Overcast and drizzly today with the summit completely clagged in. The Trig pillar is on top of an outcrop of rocks and boulders and is in fine condition. A very enjoyable walk in some quite lonely country.

Mount Keen is the most easterly Munro. A Munro is a Scottish summit over 3000Ft. Trig pillar in reasonable condition. Flush bracket faces south. Summit of loose boulders. Nice walk from Dinnet. Visited and photographed 6/08/2001, GRP.
