Airlie Monument and Dykehead circuit

The Airlie Monument is a familar landmark in the lower reaches of Glen Clova and Glen Prosen, sited on Tulloch Hill between the two. It is well worth a visit for the fine views as well as to see the monument itself - a memorial to the ninth Earl of Airlie who died in the Boer war. The route starts from the beautiful Scott-Wilson memorial, and extends the usual short ascent to make a very pleasant circular walk.
