To get to the Bennachie Centre car park - follow the A96 Aberdeen to Inverness road, you by pass Inverurie, when you come of the last roundabout 'Blackhall Roundabout' drive on 1.7 miles turn left after the signpost for Chapel of Garioch, it is quite concealed, so go slow not to miss it. Follow this road for 1.8 miles when you will arrive in Chapel of Garioch. Pic 2 Turn left at the junction signposted Bennachie Centre and follow this road for 2 miles to the B. Centre, turn right and it is a short drive into the car park. Car Parking fees are £2.00 for 3 hours. The Longitude and Latitude for the Bennachie Centre Car Park will take you directly to the car park ( N57.28494 W2.50128 ) or here's a Google link: https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Unnamed+Rd,+Inverurie,+Aberdeenshire+AB51+5HY/@57.284801,-2.500871,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x48844736d6c539c1:0xc1c9a4bab12f5360. There are many lovely forest walks to follow and the paths area really well maintained, one I recommend is the Colony Trail is 4 km circular route, taking roughly 2 hours and easy going trail through the Scots pine woodland which passes the remains of houses of the Bennachie Colony, a crofting community which settled and farmed the land in the 1800s. Coffee / Lunch afterwards in the Old Post Office in Chapel of Garioch https://www.facebook.com/pages/Old-Post-Office-Tea-Room-Chapel-of-Garioch-Inverurie/133217453408701
