I parked at the uninhabited farm of Tilphoudie on the first minor road heading north to the east of Aboyne. (home of the Image Wood Stone Circle) To get to the enclosure follow the fence up the hill until it meets another. Over this and keep going.

Although overgrown at this time of year, a winter time visit would be better, the surrounding wall of the 27m wide enclosure can be seen all the way round. Several big boulders have also been placed in the wall. A gap in the wall on the eastern side marks the entrance.

Tremendous views of Dee-side and the valley to the east and south.

Little Hill is in the shadow of the bigger hill Mortlich to the north west, home to a hillfort.
