An ideal short walk for a warm day. Been up this hill a lot but never tire of it as the combination of a walk through woodland followed by extensive sea views is just fantastic. Can't seem to do it justice in photos but if you are ever passing through Cullen on the Moray coast you should make that small detour. You won't regret it.

Hi litljortindan, a fine wee dawnder, must do the next time up up near Cullen, mind you the last time I was there I was 16years old and on a bicycle a mighty mighty long time ago now. Better check out what other hills I can do at the same time. Looks a nice hill with fine views.

Definitely worth a visit and probably the best of the small hills in the area, some others being Knock Hill (purgatory), Foreman Hill (pleasant walking through woods and on moorland with views of the Deveron), Clashmach Hill (very pleasant summit area and good views all round), Foudland Hill (landrover track up but watch out for bull in field!).
