I came to Aberdeenshire in 1980’s to study forestry at Aberdeen University. As a student, I visited Bennachie with friends and once qualified moved to Inverurie to work for a private forestry company before becoming a self-employed woodland advisor. I got married on the hill in 1989 ( see photo). My husband’s family originally came from Inverurie and I soon started to learn about and explore the hill. When the Bennachie Visitor Centre first opened I worked as a part time ranger and then left to become a full time ranger with Forest Enterprise. I now work as an Environment Ranger for Forest Enterprise doing the pre work checks before work starts on a forestry site, one of my sites includes Bennachie! I have been involved with the Bailies of Bennachie since I came to the area and have been on the committee for many years.
