Drumcarrow summit
Drumcarrow summit
The top of the ridge line has been used by man for thousands of years.

An old fortification, perhaps a broch, has the high ground, a quarry just over the skyline, OS trig on the ridgeline and from the modern era, a telecommunications mast.

Drumcarrow is not very high at just over 700 feet AMSL but it's the commanding line of sight views over much of eastern Scotland that still make it important today.
