Hill of Rhinstock

One of the Ladder Hills in NW Aberdeenshire, the Hill of Rhinstock rises to 608m (1994 feet) a half-mile (1 km) east of Moss Hill and to the northeast of Glen Nochty. A substantial pile of stones known as the Jubilee Cairn lies on its southern slopes. This measures about 3.5m (11½ feet) in diameter and 1.5m (5 feet) in height, has been assessed by Aberdeenshire Council as of regional importance. Given that it is shown on the Second Edition Ordnance Survey map of 1900, and not on earlier maps, it seems likely it is named for Queen Victoria's jubilee of 1887 or 1897.
