This hardly seems worth of a walk page all to itself, but the walk encompassed a trig point and a county top, so I suppose in that respect it should be documented.

I was on my way home from a meeting in Aberdeen and took the opportunity to drive a mere 4 miles out of my way to bag this summit. I made a quick “Superman” style clothing change in the car park and almost jogged to the top in business shirt, trainers and my usual walking trousers.

There was a constant stream of helicopters overhead (or possibly the same one circling), from Dyce airport visible only a few miles away. The summit was otherwise peaceful and quiet.
