Gave up on a longer walk the day before due to breathlessness and generally feeling crap. Bin of Cullen, with its path now repaired, made for an easier outing, Legs still felt a bit odd but the visibility was excellent. Ben Wyvis clearly in view seventy miles to the west.

Always enjoy climbing hills with good sea views and this looks like one to think about if in the area - thanks for posting.

Great stuff - a hill pretty local to me but I've yet to climb it; every time I go to Cullen there's a sea kayak on top of my car!

Really like the images with the hill's shadow, looks like you had a super day for it

Kind regards

Ian

I am Jill the wife of John, we climbed this hill together one of my favourites. A lovely hill. I enjoy the woodland beginning and stream. A small but inviting hill. I often think of Benny Hill being named after this hill. An uplifting hill not like knock hill or the Cairngorms.
