Hill walks galore

If you're a keen hill walker, Insch won't disappoint with Bennachie, Hill of Dunnideer  and many other walks on its doorstep.

Steeped in history

Located only a short walk from Insch you can find the remains of Dunnideer Castle, an ancient hillfort dating to circa 250 BC. The ruins of a medieval castle that still remain on the hill are from a larger structure that was built circa 1260.
