The picture was taken from the road; there was an orange gas pipeline marker there, and a couple of smaller markers. The structure in the foreground is part of the same gas network. The course of the power lines in the background is marked on the map.

The building almost directly behind the pylon is Easter Drumquhassle Cottage (NS48628726); to the left of that are the roofs of the buildings of Easter Drumquhassle Farm (NS48658715).

The left end of the concrete structure (gas network) is useful as a reference in what follows: the point on the skyline directly behind that edge marks a dip in the skyline hills. About halfway between that dip and the left edge of the picture is Pappert Hill (NS4280, 6 miles, 9.5 km). To the right of that dip is Carman Hill (NS3779, 9 miles, 14.5 km) and the range of muirs that extend NNW from it. A small part of Ben Bowie (NS3382, 10 miles, 16 km) is at the far right.
