Wormy Hillock



I parked at first track after Orditeach on the A941 and walked north hoping to find the Chapel cairn as well, sadly I didn't and became lost instead. Now looking at a map (which I'd stupidly left in the car) I found I climbed the Hill of Oldmerdrum, down the other side and waded the Kirkney Water to get back onto the main forestry track. Good fun this if somewhat tiring. I doubled back to the bridge, found the wee car park complete with henge and hillock.

I've always wanted to come to this place. It certainly has superb views of Noth. The maze of roads offer superb walks. Take an OS map, helps a lot.

You are right about it being a maze round there. Bet it was pretty hot yesterday? thelonious Posted by thelonious

It was unbelievable, wading the burn was one of the best ideas I've ever had! drewbhoy Posted by drewbhoy
