For anyone who likes sea views I'd recommend this short walk. The start is along a pleasant grassy avenue through some whins and just east of a quarry. At the end of this section of the walk a fence must be crossed, then easy ground in a field followed by crossing of another field. The next section is rougher but ends at what looks like the boundary of the summit hill fort remains. Thereafter the going is on easy, pleasant, short grass. The views range from the nearby villages of Sandend and Portsoy to the surrounding hills of Knock, Bennachie and Bin of Cullen and, north west, the east coast of Sutherland.
