Just as a note of caution when going up Cairnsmore (which is a very pleasant climb) but some munitions shells were discovered by a walker up there recently. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-south-scotland-28754943

and it is a frequent site for mountain rescue team calls when people get lost in the mist, no paths! so take a map and compass in case the mist comes down

This is now WMR, ex UKNIWM, report 71898.

I have laid it on thick about the remoteness of the location, as in no way do I wish to encourage anyone to viist this particular memorial and themselves become a casualty.
