“Pleasant walk to Gight Castle”
Review of Gight Woods

Gight Woods
Ranked #72 of 155 things to do in Aberdeen
Attraction details
Reviewed 15 August 2014

Gight Wood lies on the steep, south facing slopes of the Ythan valley, forming the easternmost part of a series of woodlands and river grasslands.
Brooding over the woods at the downstream end is the ruin of Gight Castle, once the family home of Lord Byron.
From the carpark on the Methlick to Fyvie road its a pleasant walk through the woods to the open fields around Gight Castle and then onto the path that takes you down into the Ythan valley opposite the Braes of Gight.

Nice walk very pleasant on a nice day work a visit if your in the area. The walk passes castle runes then runs down along the river which is nice.

Have visited here with family. It's a great place for a good trek. The scenery in parts is stunning. It's quite a long walk but my 3 year old grandson can do it and loves it. Can be tricky walking in parts so strong footwear best. haven't been for a while so have to go again soon.
