Interesting little outing

098Today we took a short drive north which took as past Culsh Monument.  This little tower lies on the outskirts of New Deer.  You can see it from a number of the roads in the area.  Alternatively you can see much of Aberdeenshire from it on a clear day, and it is well worth the short drive to do so.

The monument commemorates William Dingwall Fordyce, Aberdeenshire’s first MP and was constructed in 1877.

There is a cute notice by the door telling visitors the various places in the village from where a key can be borrowed in order to let you climb the 24m spire to admire the view from the viewing platform.  Purdie’s Chemist shop holds a key, as do two other villagers mentioned.

The Community Association clearly hope that many people will take advantage of this opportunity
