Scenic North-East Scotland low hills walk. Overlooking Deeside and Glen Dye this can be the start for more challenging summits. A decent sized peak, the initial ascent is easy as you follow the track through grazing fields and over a meandering stream. The trees offer shelter, but the terrain can be slippery and more steep (but the path has been enhanced by development work). Coming out of the treeline, the summit can be clearly seen and the path carves round the hill in an increasingly steep gradient which has been laid with stone. A slight scramble to the very top has the reward of panoramic views around Deeside. An afternoon walk for the family and some degree of fitness is needed especially the last section.
