From the Baron's Cairn keep heading east until another path heads north towards Balnagask (in student days I lived in nearby Torry). The cairn is situated to the west of the path and is well guarded by the jabby things but there is a way thru.
What is obvious is the fact that some people use the cairn going by the remains of flowers. Just a shame that plastic wrappers a left behind tho. The cairn still sits at 19 meters in width being 1.8 meters high. Good views all round again. To be honest I spent most of the time trying to imagine the countryside without Aberdeen. The rivers Don and Dee must have been major players here.
Keep going east from the Tullos Hill cairn to the next wee hill, however I approached from St Fittocks church and headed west. The end result is the same.
The barrow is badly covered in whins, furze but in some parts is visible. Rabbits have had a good crack at excavation so many holes to fall into which the unwary Drew did. At its widest it is almost 25 meters wide and sits at 1 metre tall. Some parts can be seen but it is difficult to spot.
One thing not in question are the views. Stunning views west to Tyrebagger, Brimmond Hill, north along the coast to Newburgh, east into the North sea and south taking in the multiple sites of the wonderful Tullos Hill.
