After a short climb from the roadside the route winds up a small wooded hill, where the path follows trees on one side and open moorland on the other. Good views over the surrounding landscape are enjoyed as the path makes its way down towards the River Don. After crossing the Don, the walk follows close to the water for a short time, then goes away from the river and follows a narrow farm track as it rises once more. A field is then crossed and the route skirts the outside of a wood, again giving great views over rural Aberdeenshire. A final descent takes you back over the river and through some farmland, back to the road that leads to the lay-by car park.

As you turn left onto the track at waymark 12 there is a new locked 2 metre high deer gate which has to be climbed. It is a standard steel gate with a timber extension bolted on, so is fairly easy to climb. Its twin has to be negotiated about 600m further on at the end of the plantation.

A wonderful walk offering a variety of lovely views over the the Don, across to Tap O'Noth, the Buck and down the Don Valley. Good tracks that are easy to walk on even if muddy and a good length, too with plenty of scenic stops for a cup of tea to admire the views. As mentioned previously Waymark 12 and the corresponding photo look very different now as the trees have all been felled. The gate is now a metal gate and the track to the left very easy and obvious to find. This is one that can be done at any time of the year.

A really enjoyable walk even when the cloud is down on the high hills. At Waymark 3 the entrance is not now quite so obvious but the picture if taken now would show a field gate just beyond the sharp right turn on to your track. As you progress from Waymark 11 to 12 the woodland shown on the OS map is being felled and the track mentioned at W12 is now very obvious due to timber traffic.

My wife and I walked this in March 09 and what a wonderful walk it is. Ian you have captured this walk very well and the views are stunning every turn brings a new view. We plan to take my sister and brother-in-law round the walk next time they visit.
