Starting in the picturesque village of Edzell, the walk follows a roadside footway to the Gannochy Bridge over the River North Esk as it passes through a deep sandstone gorge. By following the road on the north of the river leading to Tarfside and Glenesk, a footpath is accessed which follows the river through the gorge, again crossing the Gannochy Bridge and continuing along another footpath returning to Edzell, this time on the south bank of the river gorge. This is a well-visited and signposted walk with views of the gorge, river, animals and salmon leaps. An alternative, shorter walk is achieved by taking a local Edzell taxi to the upstream start at Waymark 5, a good idea for an evening walk when time is short.
