Torry Battery and Girdle Ness, Aberdeen

Girdle Ness is the headland that guards the southern side of Aberdeen harbour. The short walk around it takes in the lighthouse, sea views and Torry Battery - built to defend the harbour in 1860; if you are lucky you might catch sight of one of the dolphins which frequently visit the mouth of the harbour. The walk is closed beyond the lighthouse until 23 April 2019; until then the circuit is not possible and you will need to retrace your steps from that point.
