Fallow Hill

Artificial Mound


Leave the A96 north of the Oyne fork turning west at the small village of Colpy taking the Largie road. Turn south for a 1/4 mile at the Wrangham road. Fallow Hill is easily spotted on the left hand side being the small hill with trees on its top. These roads are single track and farm traffic can be a hold up.

Stop at the first group of trees on Wrangham road and follow the dry stane dyke to the small wood. The barrow is straight in front at high end of the hill, with great views of Bennachie and Dunnydeer etc. It is some 8 meters at its maximum width and half a meter in height at its tallest. Beware the rabbits and badgers have had a field day in this wood, so watch your feet. In reality there isn't much to see here but its a pleasant short work nothing strenuous. Another small piece in a very large jigsaw.
