Nice afternoon stroll. Bull warning sign ought to be swapped for sheep warning sign.

Camera battery was flat so I've added some screen dumps from the video clip below. Well worth a visit if you are visiting north east Aberdeenshire. See Foggieclimber's Waughton Hill report for a good description of the points of interest.
