Had a lovely walk up to the tower, such great views & beautiful clear air. It's a lovely way to blow away the cobwebs & clear the head. The tower is well maintained & has a railing for safety on the steps & at the top.

We had a lovely time in Kirkhill Forest and Tyrebagger Woods. Not sure what the local custom of dancing naked around the Tappie is all about. We all joined in & had such fun.

Popular with dog walkers, families and mountain bikers, Tyrebagger woods is a good place for a stroll. There are waymarked trails through the forest which are easy to follow with sculptures located at various points. In December, Christmas trees are available for purchase from the Forestry Commission. Parking.

A good walking area easily within reach of Aberdeen. depending on the walk there are good view and woodland to walk though. If you care to find them there are sculptures though the forest. I walked from Tyrebagger around Elrick hillther are however many options.

This is a beautiful place for walkers. You can just walk through the woods. There are sculptures to find - I still have not found them all. There are hills as well as flat groud. You can follow the river along to come out towards the airport. The trails are very well marked to help you along. You can follow... More
