This site lies at an altitude of about 610m in the western Ochil Hills, between the summits of Blairdenon Hill and Greenforet hill. This area of the Ochils forms a large plateau with extensive views to the southern Highlands and the Forth valley.

At the site there is a small memorial cross to the pilot who died in the crash, and a few small wreckage parts from the aircraft. Although the designation ID of the aircraft indicates that it was civilian (G-AKCH) it appears to have been an ex-RAAF aircraft and the memorial states the pilot, A. J. Cuthbertson, was from the ATC.

There is one picture of this site on the NBSAB website here.

These pictures were taken in March 2010.
