Headed east on saturday to fife to bag some marilyns, after the weather had wrecked my graham bagging in the west, fife was dry but breezy on the tops, walked cairnie hill, normans law, and mount hill in the morning, east lomond and largo hill in the afternoon.

That`s a handy stick someone has planted at the summit of Cairnie Hill :)
Wasn`t there a few years ago.

The same person that stuck one on Mount Hill, perhaps?


Wasn't there last time I went. And look, there's another leaning against the trig on Largo Law. Do you carry round a whole bundle rp, or is it the same one?

The stick also plays a supporting role in photos of Grey Hill, Craigenreoch, Meith Bheinn and Druim a' Chuirn as the smallest bit if detective work reveals. Seems to be robertphillips' own stick, so will not be waiting for the next person to ascend Cairnie Hill, who will have to search the undergrowth for the top the same as I did
