A very pleasant circular walk on the outskirts of Forres, Moray, culminating in a short climb to Nelson's Tower, the first monument built in Britain (1812) to commemorate Nelson's victory at Trafalgar. Other delightful loitering points are the Mosset Burn and Sanquhar Loch. Paths are everywhere good and are signposted. There are a few metres to be walked on the pavements of quiet roads. Gradients are gentle; a little steeper at the end, going up to the Tower. An enjoyable family walk (with dog). Refreshments, shops etc. in Forres.
