Craig Rossie - nr Dunning Perthshire

As a golfer at Dunning Golf Course and with a hole named after Craig Rosie, I have always wanted to climb the hill to get a view of the course from the top. Set off today with my son Alex , thankfully getting parked at Pairney Farm.
Only enough room for a couple of cars (socially distanced).

Headed along the farm track and past the rear of the farm-sheds, through a dis-used quarry, and then immediately turned left and up a steep unmade path.

This is a steep climb. Keeping the fence on our left we made our way to gate at the end of the fence and climbed over, as it was padlocked. :roll:

The next stage was another steep climb to the top of the western (like a toboggan run in the snow)

From here we made our way east (short walk) to the Triangulation Pillar which offered spectacular views including the golf course at Dunning. :D

Overall a 2 hour round trip and well worth a visit.
