Drumtochty Kincardineshire, there are two ways of approaching this delectable glen that carries the upper reaches of the Luther Water from Loch Saugh through a wooded defile in a great semi-circle between Strathfinella Hill and the foothills of the Mounth.

There is the road from Fettercairns to the Clatterin‘ Brig, which is the southern terminus of the Cairn o Mount, or the journey may be made in the reverse direction, going upstream from the village of Auchinblae and its near neighbour the ancient Kirktown of Fordoun which form the link between this hill country and the lush green plain of the Hone of Mearns.

From Clatterin' Brig, instead of continuing along the B974, which climbs over the pass, it is possible to take the road to the right or east and, splashing through the ford on the Burn of Slack, climb up the hill past the experimental farm at Glensaugh. Loch Saugh is among the trees on the right, and on the left is Brightls Well, once reputed to have medicinal qualities. Then the road dcscends via Strathfinella into the Glen of Drumtochty. To the right is the entrance to Friar"s Glen, where John of Fordoun is said to have written his Chronicle six centuries ago.

There is new life in Drumtochty Glen since the Forestry Commission acquired and planted Drumtochty Forest in 1926-7 and the Glen- farquhar Hills in l953.
