An enjoyable threesome of Sub2000ers.

Parked at Fourman hill about 11:30 and got back to my car from Bin of Cullen at 17:00 so about 5.5 hours which is not to bad driving on dodgy single track roads and missing all the turn offs :crazy: :crazy: definitely need the Banff Huntly OS 29 map for this lot.

If you tackle this lot when the clocks change hill of foudland and hill of tillymorgan could also be added and are on the OS 29 map.

Car parking for Fourman hill. pity it takes you half way up the hill and only leaves a wee stroll to the top a better way to do it may be to park at the Hotel at the cross roads and walk from there to the forest track.

I fked up big time on this hill as i come to the first fence and seen a path leading upwards i just followed it and ended up climbing up through thick heather. of course on the way down i remembered the WH instructions saying to continue to the next fence where it would be much easier than the line i took.

Trig point and Bin of Cullen in the distance but only about a half hour drive on some dodgy back roads. Cracking views from here i was looking at a sna covered hills across the moray firth which i think may have been the Sutherland Grahams.

If you do hill of foudland JC i would recommend parking in Colpy just as you turn off the A96 unless you have a 4x4 off road motor as the road is not really suitable for a car after the tarmac road ends at the last house.
