Date walked: 18/01/2020

Time taken: 0.5 hour

Cnoc Freacadain - not to be confused with Cnoc An Fhreacadain, even if Google Maps does spell it the same way. This Watch Hill, all of 132m above sea level, watches Dounreay and the Baillie wind farm. Said farm had the makings of an excellent crop on this day.

Going up

There are two long cairns on the top, one of which is said to have been built up from two or three round ones. Now they're pretty squashed, well walked-on and not obviously chambered, but definitely visible.
