Deer fence on An t-Srn
Two deer fences meet on An t-Srn. The newer one borders the southern edge of Kindrogan Wood, identified as Forestry Commission access land on the 1:50000 OS map. The older one runs south across Glen Derby. I think it is the border of Atholl Estates.

Between them, the two fences run for about 4 Km without a single stile, blocking access for walkers north and west from lower Glen Derby.

At this point there is an unusual wooden platform joining the top of the fence to an adjacent ledge. It would be relatively easy to cross the fence here by climbing up the fence onto the platform. But the return direction to the east would be more awkward. There is an overhang and ground falls away steeply just below the fence.
