This is a nice little hill just outside Banchory. There is a big car park and there are several routes through the forest signposted, so you can just go for a forest walk, but instead take one of the paths up through the trees and after about half an hour you will reach the top of the hill, where there is a prominent tower. Inside is a recently installed spiral staircase which takes you to the top. Not a lot of room up there though! you may have to wait your turn. From the top you get a good view of Banchory and all around. Use this little hill as a training ground to get the experience of climbing a hill, it would be fine for little ones. Get a taste for it and bigger hills beckon.

This is a nice place to walk the dogs, although it is quite busy at times, there are lots of different paths that can be taken and a tower at the very top which you can walk up to.
