|Cycled up track from West during Pandemic. Security cameras guarding construction site on top!!||dave g||04/04/2020|
|From Mains of Kinmundy - a short walk with L (after dropping Andrew off at Dyce Airport) through the housing estate at the top edge of West Hill and up the reservoir track. An additional reservoir is being dug near the summit - currently the top soil / rock pile overtops the summit by a few metres. West Hill is a new town, being farmland until 1960's - it has grown rapidly due to N.Sea oil with the many large shiny glass office blocks on the business park now a centre of world expertise in sub-sea oil and gas technology. Wiki states - 'The growth has been such that the Postal Area formerly known as Skene has been renamed Westhill, so that for postal purposes, the once two-horse-hamlet of Westhill now covers many square miles'.||Chris Pearson||29/02/2020|

|Had read previous log - Parked at gate and walked up and past resr to stone circle, however didn't know where the gate was and couldn't see the farm track from the main road. Parked at some green gates and headed up a track in the general direction of the trig to find myself in another cow field with them all following me. Then once a little higher I could see the farm road I should have been on, so crossed barbed wire fence onto this and headed up to the farm at Souterhill, no one about here so could possibly have driven up to farm or at least to waterworks half way up track. Anyhow I was here now and faced with a gate and a note - cattle in field, I could see that, they didn't bother me going up thankfully and once in the reservoir at the top I spotted some lose barbed wire in the top corner and was soon over at the trig point. Lovely stone circle, great spot. The cows on my return became my best pals and got very close and personal, I tried the hands up making myself look as big as||thejackrustles||02/07/2017|
