Absolutely amazing - parked after second bridge on the left verge and followed the deer fence all the way up to the trigpoint - fair effort to get up here but worth it the views of clach and north sea brilliant

Parked in the small layby near spot height 369. Very high and wet heather to start which gets shorter the nearer to the fence you get. Over the Deere fence & to the trig. I don't know if there is a gate through the fence close by to the trig as it was raining and dark.

Only a short distance from the road, but deep heather made it arduous. May have been better to follow up the deer fence.

Parked in handy lay-by below trig for a brief hoof up the heather to find a new deer fence that you had no choice but to climb to hug the trigpoint. Old deer fence still in place and much easier to get through.

Paused to bag this en route to Ballater from Montrose during a 2 week tour of UK in a motorhome. I even managed to persuade Kim and her daughter to trudge through the heather and they agreed that the lovely a/r views were worth it.

Up from the lay-by below to find the pillar next to the deer fence. Wrong side, but easy to get through. Plastic cap and one s/h open. A freezing strong wind today; luckily only took 15 minutes in all.

Parked immediately east and a short walk over the heather. Two deer fences to negotiate a few metres from the pillar but the trig can been seen clearly by those not inclined to climb. Limited views due to mist and drizzle.

after walking 17 miles to Mount Battock, a quick run up from the road to this trig couldn't be missed even in the pouring rain

I visited this while driving back from Banchory -- where I'd been living for 6 months, while lecturing at Aberdeen -- for a final look over at Mount Keen, Clachnaben, and Mount Battock... What a shame I never made it up the last... I *must* return!

First visit. To record FB number. HISTORY: Pillar completed 23rd April 1950 costing 15.16s.5d. Computed as tertiary triangulation station NO89/T37 in 1950. Levelled for height in 1956. Last maintained by the OS in July 1973. Trig pillar in good condition, but being just a few minutes walk from the nearest public road, its spider no longer retains an OS centre cap. The flush bracket faces ESE towards Goyle Hill. Just over one mile north of Cairn o' Mount on the B974.
