2nd of 3 Trig Points visited today on my 20 mile cycle/walk outing during Covid-19 Lockdown. Lovely sunny day. Easy to find as situated on the grass bank just off the road.

Caught bus out from Aberdeen, uninspiring walk up to TP which is easy to find at the side of the highest point on the road. Views to Benachie. It retains its central plug.

My old map still showed the road open at both ends - which it isn't. Nice roadside trig with good views.

One of the easiest trigs to find and get to. A small walk along the old Kemnay to thainstone market road.
