About 1100m SE of the summit of Knocklaur there is this substantial cairn (L94556 62574 I). The 1:50k map (and the Sheet 10 half inch) has the Knocklaur name nearer to this point than what our list calls Knocklaur. However the cairn marks nothing more than a bump with a prominence of only around 5m from the ridge so it is hard to see why it should be given the name.
