Really enjoyed the walk up to this and fantastic views from the top, steep in the last section but well worth it.

Second visit. For GPS reading and updated photographs. SITE VISIT: Approached from southwest. Parked in Strachan on south side of B976 just east of public park beside war memorial NO671922. Followed mapped farm road to NO674927 then turning east along waymarked footpath between fields and through woods which follows a route via NO679930 and NO677936. Path continues out onto open hill towards summit with tower. Pillar in good condition. Spider centre plugged with tar. Flush bracket faces NNE, ~23. All sight holes open, innards blocked with debris. Near full 360 panorama, obstructed only by the tower.

vgc, asphalt plug, popular summity, 2 toposcopes, fine view especially from top of tower. Forest busy with birds: Cuckoo, Tree pipit etc. Got there just before the dogwalking rush-hour. Car park at NO685947, good path to trig.

Wonderful views over Deeside and beyond. They are even better from the top of Burnett Tower, which stands right beside the trig pillar.

First visit. To record FB number. HISTORY: Pillar completed 10th August 1949 costing 12.7s.6d. Computed as tertiary triangulation station NO89/T54 in the Aberdeen block during 1950. Levelled for height also in 1950. Last maintained by the OS in August 1973. SITE VISIT: Pillar in good condition. Spider plugged with hard resin / tar. Flush bracket on North east face of pillar. Within easy walking distance of Banchory. This hill is dominated with a large tower. A humming bean appears in this picture. Who is this guy?
