This is a well-marked route and having found it online, I’ve included a published route on Outdoor Active. You can download the GPX or follow the route via their app. It is also one of the routes that you can find on the information board in the car park at the walk start point.
My first walk of this route was on 11th April 2021, still in ‘Stay Local’ at the time and had travelled from our home nearby. As is common is Scotland we started with snow on the ground and finished in blazing sunshine getting the most out of the seasons.
