Got to the top and starting getting an acrid smoke smell. Tried breathing through my nose but still felt a bit crap when I got back to the car and for a couple of days afterwards.
A good view of a snow-capped Knock Hill from the start of the walk.
Logg Wood beckons.
Starting to see some smoke blowing over the top.
Logg Island bottom right.
Fourman Hill and Knock Hill.
Logg Island again.
Ben Rinnes to the south west.
Tap o' Noth and The Buck.
Most of the smoke is sitting to the south.

Thanks! Smoke aside, it is a lovely spot.

It can be turned into a loop walk by either descending to the west and looking for a gate and track down to the Deveron or by heading east from the carpark a short way and climbing a fence or gate to get onto the same Deveron track. One barbed wire crossing on the hill.
