This charming small hill overlooking the village of Braemar has a lot to offer with outstanding views of the River Dee valley and the southern Cairngorm range. It is best enjoyed in the height of summer due to the huge variation of wildlife and should not be missed if staying in the area. The route is mainly flat apart from the initial ascent which should last no more than 30 minutes, therefore making it a good choice for a family with children 10 years and above. It is worth bearing in mind the wind can be an issue however, even if it is quite still on the ground as this area is very exposed.
