To the north of the Ringing Stone the Hill Of New Leslie stands looking up and down the Gadie Burn valley. This at one time must have been one of the biggest forts in the area although hardly any remains can be seen. Earthworks, barely visible, are on the northern slopes but most have long gone mainly thanks to agriculture. The best evidence for the fort is on aerial images so up goes the Canmore post.
As is usual, up here, the Tap O Noth and Bennachie can be seen. The climb is fairly steep but rewarding for the views at the top.
