Coiliochbhar

What a lovely little hill. We set off from the Cushnie Forest car park from where a forest track leads onto the hill via a couple of gates.
After an hour views open up right round from Lord Arthur's Hill to the north, Bennachiie and co. to the east, Morvern and Lochnagar to the south, Ben Avon to the west and the Buck to the north west.
Pleasant walk through the wood before the trig point brought us to the summit view that further extended to include Tap o' Noth.
I remember seeing this hill from Lord Arthur's Hill three years ago and thinking it looked good without knowing what I was looking at. I also didn't immediately realise I was looking at Lord Arthur's Hill when nearing the top of Coiliochbhar but now those two bits of the Aberdeenshire jigsaw have been fitted together.
