Route as per previous visitors. Easy, dry ascent. Great views. Pillar on small hump in middle of some sort of ancient fort structure. Easy 15 minutes stroll.

Log #116. As others have mentioned, at the 239 spot height there is room on the verge to park by the gate. From there, following the track through the fields, over the style at the SW corner and there is a blink-and-you'll-miss-it path through the heather all the way to the top. Good views for very little effort. Pillar is in good condition, but cap is missing. [ExP-105/MiP-2/Rev-1/BM-8]

Missing cap and view W.

Amazing clarity of light on this cold and windy day. Last minute decision to make a circular walk up here from Perth station.

Sunny now but that rain cloud was soon headed my way

Pillar set on what looks like a tumulus. Rain threatening; I could see about a mile away rainclouds dramatically falling from the sky,complete with rainbow,and heading my way, but a quick dash across the splashy fields avoided another soaking.

Parking and gate at high point of road N from Kilspindie. Stile over barbed wire fence at top of field--excellent!

Quick jaunt up from the road.Well worth walking over to the old hill fort for a better view to the south.

Approached from south, left via NE. First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 29th May 1948 costing 6.5s.6d. Later in 1948 this marker was computed for triangulation as secondary station NO42/14 in the Dundee block. Flush bracket S4731 was levelled for height in 1953. This marker was last maintained by the OS in March 1988. Big views all round.
