Had been past this hill a few times but never caught it before with an empty parking spot. Umpteenth time lucky then but not before an interesting and free visit to Insch museum at the railway station.

The way up was very easy going on shortish but damp grass which was just about bearable in our trainers.
Good views from the top, especially to near neighbour Dunideer.

Knock Saul which we climbed earlier in the year but without a camera on the basis that it would be dull but it was, in fact, quite a memorable walk because of the views
