Geocache Description:





Perth and Kinross is the fifth largest Council area in Scotland with an area of 2,041 square miles and the thirteenth most populous with approximately 147,000 residents.

There are a few places to park at the roadside nearby, but I have indicated what I think is the best. The initial terrain on the way to this cache is pretty rough, but if you initially head east, you can avoid most of the knee deep heather before heading straight for the top. There is a line of shooting hides along the way to indicate you are on the right path. (Path? What path?). It gets easier the further up you go.

From the cache location, I'd advise you to continue the short distance to the top (you've come this far, so why wouldn't you?). The views on a clear day are outstanding with Perth visible to the east. To the north lies Aberfeldy and Pitlochry and to the west you get a great view of the River Almond flowing down through the glen from its source.

A few words of warning however. This isn't one of Scotland's highest mountains - it is only half the height of a Munro - but it should still be treated with respect. Conditions can change very quickly so please ensure you are properly equipped before attempting this cache. There are sheep and wildlife on the hill, so dogs should be kept on leads at all times. Please avoid completely if there is evidence of grouse shooting going on.

Otherwise - enjoy!

And don't forget to note the numbers within the cache if you want to find the bonus once you've found all 31 others in the series!
