A short circular walk up a 223m high hill on the edge of Perth
Distance: 4.5km; Ascent: 180m; Misty but quite warm; Solo
After an excellent evening in Braemar last night catching up with many TGO Challengers, it was now unfortunately time for me to head home. The weather wasn't overly inspiring this morning, with all the hills cloaked in mist down to quite low levels. But I was still keen to get out for a walk to break up the journey south, if only for an hour or so. Moncreiffe Hill near Perth seemed to fit the bill nicely and was only a short detour off route.
Therefore just before midday, I set off from the newish car park to the north of the hill and followed the good waymarked paths through the Woodland Trust's Moncreiffe Hill Wood. There were a number of interesting sculptures and carvings alongside some of the paths.
