Mither Tap

(Mither Tap o' Bennachie)

The second highest peak of the Bennachie massif, Mither Tap (or more fully the Mither Tap o' Bennachie) rises to 518m (1733 feet) to the north of the River Don, 6 miles (10 km) northeast of Alford. On its bare granite summit is a prominent vitrified hill-fort, thought to have been occupied between 1000 BC and 1000 AD. Within the remains of the hill-fort is an Ordnance Survey primary triangulation pillar installed in 1936 for the re-triangulation of Great Britain.
