Walk: Don't bash Brimmond Hill

Aberdeen City | Westhill | Short walk | ★★

[Brimmond Hill]

Unfashionable Brimmond Hill forms the centrepiece of a rather scrubby country park, scarred by an ugly radio mast and surrounded by dual carriageways - including Aberdeen's new ring road. That's the bad stuff out the way - surely there's no way back from here? Well actually, if you ignore the man-made clutter around you then there are some fine views to be had: the Granite City backed by the North Sea to the east; fields stretching away into Deeside and Donside to the west. As Aberdeen's local hill it'll always be a popular spot for walking the dog, but it's worth the easy climb even without a canine companion.
