Decided to walk after work and get a small climb in. I am new to climbing and done a few hills and nearly a Munro. Found the walk up quite boring as it was through a field first with no clear path. The start co ordinates are a parking lay-by on the Angus and Perth and Kinross border. You walk back the way of coming from the Angus area and it’s the second gate on the right, not the first one. Once up it’s great views and has a cairn with all the hills around pointed out so you can see Ben Nevis through to Mayar and Driesh and the Lomond Hills in Fife. Great once we were up but I thought we were never getting there.
