Bailies of Bennachie
Bennachie is the best known range of hills in the North East of Scotland. The highest summit being Oxen Craig at 528m and the most prominent Mither Tap at 518m.
The Bailies of Bennachie were formed almost 40 years ago as a voluntary conservation society, whose objectives are to encourage and stimulate the public’s interest of Bennachie.
Our work involves the maintaining of footpaths and rights of way, enhancing people’s enjoyment of Bennachie, by promoting its geology, literature, ballads, poetry, art and music through publications and events.
Bennachie has many faces, some of which can been seen at an exhibition in the Bennachie Centre, Essons Car Park near Chapel of Garioch.
As a registered charity you can help continue and support the valuable work of the Bailies for an annual membership of £5 ( see membership page).
Activities in 2013
The Bailies have ongoing projects including Bennachie Landscapes Project and monthly work parties start in March 2013 (see Volunteering). We will be 40 years old in 2013 and have many interesting Events planned, see Events Calendar for details.
