On my way up to visit relatives in the highlands I figured that the dogs would need a pee stop and that as that was happening I may as well knock off a sub 2000er and a trig en route.

Well as I am sure a lot of you are aware the relentless march of the wind turbines across Moray has not left this little hill un touched, there is a wind farm that covers both the small hills that I was interesed in. This made the going very easy indeed but also very boring. Not that much could be done to make either of these hills in any way interesting. They were so boring in fact that I only took a few pictures of the dogs and almost nothing else!
