Lovely Walk

Great afternoon out with kids and dog, quite a steep climb in places but worth it for the view at the top!

Went for a lovely walk up Bennachie last Sunday & what a lovely time we had. Took an hour to walk from the Bennachie centre up to the top of mither tap. Lovely views from the top.

Good walk if your fit enough. You can see for miles on a clear day from the mither tap good sturdy walking shoes or trainers are required.

I've been for countless climbs on Bennachie but it never gets old. There are plenty of options for you as there are different paths to take you to the top and with all of them you will be guaranteed fantastic views. It's really popular and when you're going up and down you'll come across lots of people - and it's... More

It's a lovely walk, that doesn't require too much fitness. Only took a couple of hours, with plenty time to stop for photos. We even had my friend's dog with us. It's easy to get to and the trails are very straightforward.

There are various routes you can take, on this occasion we parked at Oyne carpark. There is a small charge for parking but there are toilet facilities and picnic area. We walked up to Little Oxen Craig which was once a quarry ( a fair climb to your work every morning) and then on up to Oxen Craig. It was... More

Excellent parking with toilets and a large picnic area may be enough for the less able but the climb up through the trees is wonderful. A walk right up to the top of Bennachie is not too difficult even at my advancing years and the views are well worth it.

A reasonable challenge, but made easier because of good paths. Enjoy the views over Aberdeenshire once you have reached a reasonable height. We started our walk from the Bennachie Visitor Centre which has exhibits and toilets. Remember to pay for the car park.

This a great little walk, or ride if you fancy biking up it. Great views from the top, gorgeous spot. Had our wedding photos taken at the base of the hill, in the snow :)

Went with my dog and had a fantastic walk, lovely views and not necessary to go to top as they have other walks. Plenty of car park spaces but it is pay and display. Thoroughly recommend this.
