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.

Having driven past this attraction for years and never visited, I decided to park and walk up it on a blustery afternoon. A short walk to the top. A good view to be seen and helpful info signs explaining the history. Small remains of the...More

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

Stayed in Elgin last weekend. Have visited this place many times and have always meant to visit the monument. There are approx. 118 steps to climb to reach the monument, which sits up on the hill. There is a statue of George v on top...More

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
