Nice wee views, and I've always wanted to know what was on top of the wee hill there, decided to take my daughter up for a stroll after visiting inverarray jail (highly recommend) just be sure to get your 4 stamps on your parole certificate to ensure you can get out...

Great main path, the circular route via the woodlands, which involves a much steeper assent/decent is not waymarked but the easiest main path is.

I parked at the castle gardens (£2 cost) but you get £2 off if visiting the castle's tearoom and spend over £5. In effect providing you with free parking :) The food in the tea room is simple and good value for money.
