Had a few hours to spare so walked up Baderonach Hill and then over to Pressendye going via a Playboy Bunny that has been cut into the hillside to the North of Broom Hill.

Parked the car at a small parking area not too distant from Tillypronie and set off, initially following the track to Baderonach hill. Easy going and clear vehicle tracks to follow. Stumbled across an interesting looking chair looking out over quite a grand view not long after setting out.

Soon arrived Badenronach Hill, offering great views over towards Morven and off into the Cairngorm mountains in the distance. Continued following the path around from here via Lazy Well and then up along the long straight track leading to Broom Hill. Before reaching the top of Broom Hill took a left turn and followed the tracks around the back of the hill to where the Playboy Bunny is etched onto the hillside. Whilst interesting to see up close, the best view would be on the hills over the other side of the glen. Only managed to snap a very poor blurry image that gives some indication of this feature. Will do another walk up the other side one day to catch a better view.

From here it was up towards Pressendye. Largely straightforward to get here, plenty of tracks and fences to follow. Again, nice view over towards Morven in particular from here. Didn't hang around too long and soon set off back towards the car, taking the straight line back over via Broom Hill to Lazy Well again (although, to mix things up a bit I did walk on the other side of the dear fence this time).

Overall, an enjoyable wander around the Grampian Mountains on a fine breezy spring day.

Thanks for posting. Another relatively local hill I had pretty much no idea about but looks like I could drag the wife up there without too much resistance.

Is a nice walk indeed, and enough tracks around the place to make a longer or shorter route depending how much time you've got.
