Hill of Kirriemuir

(Kirrie Hill)

A summit lying in the E of Kirriemuir in Angus, the Hill of Kirriemuir (or Kirrie Hill) is located a half-mile (0.8 km) northeast of the town centre. It rises to a height of 193m (633 feet) although an Ordnance Survey triangulation lies to the east of the summit at an altitude of 189m (620 feet). A Camera Obscura, cemetery and a small reservoir lie on its western slopes, with a mound and standing stone closer to the summit, which are of archaeological interest. An old sandstone quarry here is popular with rock-climbers.
