We all needed some much needed exercise after the festive period and with my wife taking the wee one away to meet her friends for coffee me and Fraser joined my dad, niece and nephew for a jaunt up Scotly Hill near Banchory. Amazingly I had never done this wee cracker.

Started off from the woodland car park where the parking meter was broken so we saved on the charge.
Photos do the talking as the route ain't hard.
