Walk: Kincorth Hill - Granite City back garden

Aberdeen City | Nigg | Short walk | ★★

[Kincorth Hill]

Kincorth Hill forms the highest point on a broad ridge, rubbing up against Aberdeen's southern suburbs above the River Dee. The summit's hardly more than an insignificant swelling amongst scrubby gorse and broom, but offers decent views over the whole city and green contrast to its grey architecture. There's a dense network of paths from various access points, and the photos on this page were taken all over the hill, but the route outlined below makes a logical circuit with space to park at the start.
