The Complete Bennachie, from Rowantree

Bennachie is an iconic Aberdeenshire hill with many summits. This route - starting up the Maiden's Causeway Path - makes for a longer walk on Bennachie than our other options, visiting most of the tops with a good deal of ascent and descent.


Mostly good hillpaths; section to Watch Craig on rougher, muddier path.

Public Transport

None to start.


Rowantree car park. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
