taken 28 years ago, near to Tomintoul, Aberdeenshire, Great Britain

The Deeside Field Club's View Indicator on Morrone.
The Deeside Field Club's View Indicator on Morrone.
This is by the Morrone Birk Wood, a protected relic of original birch forest. In the distance are the snowy Cairngorms.

["The pedestal has been changed since this 1990 photograph to a cylindrical column but I think the bronze plates are the same as they were originally.

It has a rather interesting history. The Scottish Mountaineering Club guidebook to the Corbetts and Other Hills states that you can't see all the points on the disc. But I believe that it is possible (a digital panoramas can be created from the site of the indicator using OS data, and this suggests you can see everything on the disc).

The designer was the architect Fenton Wyness, who was a member of the Deeside Field Club".] - Thanks, David Squires.
