Hill of Dunnideer, near Insch

The Hill of Dunnideer is a prominent local landmark, crowned by an ancient hillfort, the ruins of a medieval castle - and last but not least - superb views out of proportion to the effort involved. This circular walk continues from the summit, passing some standing stones to return through a belt of new woodland planted for wildlife.


Steep but grassy ascent up hill. Return walk cuts through pasture land and then along edge of newly planted woodland; long grasses may make for wet feet after rain.
