Edintore is best described as a disgrace, I don't care who's to blame but something surely could have been done to save some of it.

Canmore describes it as badly mutilated. They where being kind. Nothing hardly remains, a slight rise in the ground with one or two stones poking their heads out. It would be better if this was flattened altogether than leave this shambles.

Apart from being a mud bath, one half planted in trees, 99% of stones removed (including perhaps a RSC), trampled to smithereens by cattle, man and machine have done the rest, there is always the view.......there isn't............ more trees. As with Caird's Wood, nearby, thankfully the Whiteleys aren't far away.

Parked just short of Edintore farm at the trees which you can follow up hill until the gate. Turn west for the muddy swimming pool and knackered cairns. Keep going uphill for the Whiteleys.
