Lovely route round Elrick Hill, up to Brimmond Hill and back to the carpark.

Log #529. Tarmac road from car park to north. Fighting against the hangover from last night's Iron Maiden concert. Topo was very handy and helped me pick out some semi-familiar peaks, including a clear view of Ben Rinnes 30 miles away. Pillar is in good condition, hill slightly spoilt be sheer number of masts but expansive views in most directions. [ExP-362/MiP-38/Rev-6/BM-42/IS-53/Other-28]

In the area for the Iron Maiden concert and decided to bag a local trig. Took the road signed Wynford Farm off the A944 and parked in the car park by the pylon. Nice walk up to the summit through the heather on fairly decent paths. Great views over Aberdeen and the surrounding countryside from the trig if you ignore the conglomeration of masts on the summit. SPOOKY COINCIDENCE...just realised this is TP666...very apt considering we were seeing Iron Maiden that evening!!!

Once I'd found my way to the car park and circumnavigated all the roadworks, the trig was a easy bag up a tarmac path all the way to the top. Good views on a lovely sunny and crisp Winter morning.

Brimmond gives great panoramic views of Aberdeenshire. Signposts up for walks to Kingswells and Elrick Hill.

Sign attached to trig.

On the slightly lower of two summits, there being a wonderful old toposcope over on the highest point. The trig is on the best top for views over Aberdeen. Ascent from the west via a dogmuck splattered path, quite disgusting.

Unremarkable hill, at least when approached from car park to the west, but lots of artefacts on the summit. Transmitter tower, memorial, trig pillar, picnic tables and huge summit cairn for county top of Aberdeenshire with flag of St Andrews on flying above it. Overflown constantly by helicopters taking off from Dyce.

Super location for all round views but these are spoilt by the mass of telecoms masts. A metal map, covered by a black metal lid, is a war memorial from June 1917 on a small hill about 50 metres to the NE which is well worth a look.

Short walk up the hill to this trig. Reasonable views towards Aberdeen and the airport at Dyce. Re Clochandighter's comments, that's true, plus (AFAIK) this hill is public land anyway.

In Scotland, permission is NOT required to visit this site, or any open land site where public safety or national security is not being compromised. HISTORY: Pillar built in 1936, no cost on record. Computed as primary triangulation station PP316 within Figure 3 of the OSGB retriangulation network during 1937. Levelled for height to Class 1 precision, tertiary standards in 1968. This station was last routinely maintained by the OS in 1981 but has since been repainted and become part of the Passive GPS network. SITE VISIT: Brimmond Hill is on the outskirts of Aberdeen. There are car parking facilties to the northeast. Pillar in good condition. Spider no longer has an OS centre cap. The flush bracket is on the northwest face of the pillar. Good views all round.
