Bennachie

As one of the most popular hill ranges in the North-East, Bennachie is very popular with mountain bikers and hillwalkers, thanks to its proximity to Inverurie and Aberdeen. Bennachie has nine distinctive tops and two ancient hill forts (Pictish and Iron Age). The lower portions of Bennachie are tree covered, which gives way to open moorland further up. The highest summit of Bennachie is Oxen Craig at 528 metres (1732 ft), and the most prominent summit is Mithir Tap.
