Disappointingchrisbien31/08/2019
Top of a large housing estate created as a garden suburb of Aberdeen but sadly now the most deprived area in Aberdeen City (from an Analysis of the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation 2016). The sad analysis carried out by Skills Development Scotland demonstrates that children from the most deprived areas are less likely than their peers to enter a positive destination (education and employment). On a positive note the current demolition of the summit Academy School, replaced by the new £47 million Lochside Academy with its superior facilities is a step in the right direction.Chris Pearson14/08/2019
Visited during a day walking around the area, mostly in the rain.Alancache09/08/2019
A quick walk up before my bus home. I'd concur that the high point is around the house gardens to the south of the school, currently a demolition siteColin Crawford24/07/2019

16.25 and as I wandered up Grampian place toTullos.circle and to the Torry academy building on the summit of the tump I saw the sign saying 'Big Noise' they must be celebrating the first finisher, I tongue in cheek thought!!. the final piece in the jigsaw Rhe only one of the Aberdeen unitary authority tumps south of the riverDeevegibagger24/03/2015
An easy drive up. But why build a school on top of a hill?Minto01/11/2014
Tricky Speirs spotted this TuMP on the ferry and demanded that we bagged it before going to ASDA to add to my almost empty diesel tank for the trip south. Flattish top so had a good walk around.Dugswell209/06/2013
