This walk passes by some remote pastureland with wonderful views up the valley of the River Gairn in the distance. Although it passes one or two farms, much of the route is over remote moorland, covered with heather and juniper. It is an easy route to follow, mostly over Land-Rover tracks. After crossing Glenfenzie Burn near Inverenzie, the middle stage is reasonably flat but gradually rises after passing an old shooting lodge. The route then rises before dipping back to Glen Fenzie again, where the stream has to be crossed by stepping-stones. A slow rise then takes you back to the start.

We did this walk yesterday and unfortunately forestry operations have badly churned up the path just after Morven Lodge. It is only just passable with a lot of scrambling and with plenty of potential to end up to your knees in mud. We found warning signs at the end of the walk (!) which say that the work is completing this month and hopefully they will make good the damage.

Re the comment by Ken Hutcheon, I did this walk last week and found only one locked gate and no fences that had to be climbed. The locked gate is at waymark 6 and is easily bypassed. The walk description now tells you how to do this.

IMPORTANT On doing a recce for this walk recently I found new padlocked gates and fences that you have to CLIMB - no person friendly access. One gate is before you get to Morven Lodge. Estate workers I spoke to said walkers should be able to climb gates. Unfortunately some of our group members can not climb gates and fences so we have to remove this walk from our list of viable outings
