Peter Hill (617 m)
Sunday 5th November 2006
Length: 9.5 km Ascent: 480m OS map 44
This Peter Hill (NO 577 886) lies on the south side of the Water of Feugh and south of the narrow road to the Forest of Birse.
We will start near the old Saw Mill at 591 916, cross the Water of Feugh and follow a short indistinct path through a gorse area, to reach the east marked path which is a stony landrover track to the summit (577 886). We will be able to admire the view of Clachnaben at the Cramlet, half way up. The ascent is fairly steep, but from the top we will be rewarded with views over lower Deeside, Forest of Birse and Mount Battock. The path continues over the top of the hill and we will descend westwards towards Baudnacauner (555 882) and then north to pick up the path descending along the Glaspits Burn. This will bring us to the path along the south side of the Water of Feugh and back to our starting point.
Walkers must wear walking boots, carry warm and waterproof clothing, hat and gloves and take plenty food and liquids. THESE ARE ESSENTIAL. Be prepared for possible wintry conditions on the top whatever the time of year. Gaiters recommended.
We may stop at the Feughside Inn afterwards for refreshments!
