Scolty Hill, Banchory

Scolty Hill

Scolty hill, on the outskirts of Banchory in Aberdeenshire, is popular with weekend hillwalkers, mountain bikers and tourists. Following a narrow road, this walk leads from the nearby car park and passes through the Scolty woodland park, before rising into moorland. Scolty hill has a monument tower on top, which was built to General Burnett. This stone tower is open to the public, and features a spiral staircase inside, allowing visitors to see the fantastic panoramic views from the the Scolty hill summit.

The walk to Scolty hill is easily extended to take in the Falls of Feugh, passing over the ancient bridge and salmon leap.
