Scolty Banchory zxc3206jhp 
 Scolty Hill Clachnaben Banchory summer Scotland Deeside gorse trees blue sky Kincardineshire some 18 miles west of Aberdeen in North East Scotland. This view is taken from its eastern side above the new developments of Hill of Banchory and is on a link road north of Woodend Barn and Tesco which eventually links with the Raemoir to Garlogie Road. In the distance is the distinct outline of Scolty Hill with its memorial tower to General Burnett and just on its left side is the tor of Clachnaben, the notable landmark for those travelling south over the Cairn O’Mount to Fettercairn. The town has always been a main visitor centre either for day trippers from Aberdeen or the usual flow of coaches and other visitors heading from Aberdeen westwards to Braemar and from there south to Perth or north to Inverness. It is also offers a very scenic route southwards over the Cairn O’Mount to Mearns. The river is a famous salmon fishing water which flows from the Cairngorms eastwards into the North Sea at Aberdeen.
