GM/ES-082 Parking

Just in case anyone else would like to activate this pimple here is the low-down on the simplest access.

Leave Keith town and take the road which ends at a small parking area at NJ458494 near to the water treatment works. Do not be distracted at Mains of Auchoynanie which has a sign saying “Stratisla Pedigree Blondes” - the mind boggles! Ignore the obvious forest commission roadway and head straight up the hill where a new path is marked by a green marker post with a blue stripe. This path takes a dogleg across a forest road but otherwise is a direct (and, in places, very well made) track to the summit trig point.

Great day for an activation and radio conditions were excellent; excellent views from the top allowing you to play spot the SOTA summit too!

Many thanks to all the chasers on this, and my second summit, for all the contacts

Don’t forget to add your tip to the summit database. They are much easier to find there!
