Route Filmstrip & Description

A short circuit around Balbirnie Park. This is one of the smaller, more accessible routes, which follows a woodland path by the river and back past the golf club and hotel. The path is wide enough for two people to walk side by side. There are a couple of slopes at gradient 15% (1 in 6). The surface of the path is firm but may be a little uneven in places. There are several seats close to the path, check out the map markers to find where they are.
