From Witch Hillock I walked back to minor road then headed south west past Gawloch Farm until this road ended. Opposite there is track, which if followed eventually leads to the Capo Long Barrow. Tho still overcast the day was beginning to improve. As others say if coming in from the other side it is signposted. From here I walked cross country back to the car via the Witch Hillock. There are a maze of paths in these woods but for change I didn't get lost. Time for lunch in my favourite Forfar pub via Keithock!

A wonderful stop-off when driving up from Loch Tay-way to Aberdeen..... a very well preserved longbarrow where you just wouldn't expect to find one. Right on! Scotland keeps the sassenach a' guessing.

First - signposted - left turn on the forestry track brings the traveller to this beauty - a great place to hang out and eat a sausage roll in the sun.
