Lundie Craigs - Meridian Monument - Long Loch - Lundie Craigs

This walk follows a popular route that visits Ledcrieff Loch, then climbs gently through woodland and along the clifftop path of Lundie Craigs. From the trig point a less-walked route follows the ridge north-east to visit the Meridian Monument. This monument lies directly south of Kinpurnie Castle, which once housed an observatory. Leaving the monument, a rough grass path contours above Long Loch, which is home to many waterfowl. This path links up with the main path leading down from Lundie Craigs and follows a flat but sometimes boggy route back through the valley to Ledcrieff Loch to rejoin the outward route.

Thanks for the prompt Kevin, I have refreshed the entire walk with new photographs and instructions. Lots of things had changed over the years but it is still a great walk.

We enjoyed this walk yesterday, though found a couple of significant changes on the ground to the descriptions given in the guide. I hope others will find the following updates helpful. Waymark 1: There is no longer a visible splitting of the road in three at a quarry entrance beyond the farm, so simply take the track that passes to the right of the farm buildings and follow this to Lencrieff Loch. Waymark 3: Where the description says 'After 100m...', you will now find yourself amongst quite high, unthinned young trees, with no sign of a forester's track. So now, follow the narrow path round to the right and up the hill until you reach the edge of the remaining forest, then 'turn right and descend to reach a wire fence'.

Thanks Mike. What a lovely walk. Nobody has mentioned the stunning views from Lundie Crags, achieved with a relatively small amount of climbing. A camera is as necessary as are walking boots.

Excellent guide notes and accurate time estimate, can be a little boggy in parts - waterproof boots recommended.
