You can find Mary Hill right in the centre of Elgin and it makes a perfect half hour detour. Any local will point you in the right direction to find the easily climbed steps.

Lovely walk up to the hill to see the castle ruins and the statue. Lots of information on the way to tell you about the area and it's history

Nice wee walk up the hill to a lovely view point. Good for a sunny day to burn off the calories from all the cake shops

There are lovely gardens at the bottom of the steps beside two small cottages which mark the entrance to the monument steps. It's a short climb to the top but it's worth noting that the steps are quite steep (although there is a handrail for...More

Free access. Steep steps but worth the view from the top! Great photo opportunity for budding photographers. The sky and views across the town and beyond in all directions is phenomenal especially if you get the mix of rain clouds and sunshine we did. Not...More

When accessed from the high street you pass though lovely gardens, up a green and well maintained grassy hill to delightful views of Elgin and the surrounding countryside. On a clear dry day this is must see for all visitors to the area.

It's worth the 5 minute walk to the top from the steps just across from the post office. It's near enough to the Tesco that you can park there. At the top are the minimal ruins of Elgin Castle (13th century) and the column dedicated...More
