Due to severe forest farming not much can be seen here apart from small parts of rampart on the western side. Heavy growth doesn't help which make the Canmore notes an excellent read. I found the cup marked stone, or I assume I did, but didn't see any cup marks so I'll go back and check properly. But I'll take a diiferent route here next time at Crichie farm.

With a sidekick in tow we approached from the west parking my car near the B993, west of Inverurie, opposite the Auqhythie minor road. Head east up the forestry track to its end head thru the trees in a south easterly direction. A fence will be reached head south until a path is found. As I climbed the fence I didn't notice a lower fence which I fell over. Unfortunately for me the fence pinged back up battering the left leg catapaulting me up into the air. However we proceeded and made it to the remains of the fort. On getting back to Turriff, to the docs and painkillers. Good fun this hobby!
