Walk through time on Aberdeenís Tullos Hill
Walkers are being invited to time-travel across one of Aberdeen's most historic landscapes this Saturday [12 Oct].
Aberdeen City Council historian Chris Croly, lead curator Judith Stones and woodlands community ranger Stephen Bly will lead the walk across Tullos Hill, which will focus on the area's history, archaeology and natural history.
Tullos Hill features a huge variety number of interesting sites and contains the best preserved Bronze Age cairn-field in the North-east of Scotland. The hill has been used for thousands of years by people and from the 18th century was farmed and partially settled. In the mid 20th century Tullos Hill was temporarily home to German prisoners of war following the Allied victory in the Second World War.
Chris Croly said: "It was a real pleasure to be involved in planning this walk on Tullos Hill because it is one of the outstanding features of Aberdeen. The hill has a remarkable breadth of archaeology, combined with some fantastic history, and it also has an interesting natural history and fine panoramic views across the city and the North Sea."
People can meet at the entrance on Greenbank Crescent in East Tullos Industrial Estate, next to Stena Drilling. The walk will then follow part of the extensive network of paths.
