This is the shortest of three circular walks starting at Oswald's bridge on the river Aye, so popular in summer that the estate has provided a large car park especially for walkers. Here the river runs in deep valleys which snake back and forth across the landscape. This walk starts along the riverbank downstream of the bridge, then along farm tracks up and over the headland to re-join the river and follow it again downstream - but now back towards Oswald's Bridge. When the path reaches Wallace's Seat (photo on the right), we go up through the woods and out of the valley to cross the headland again. This now resembles a moor, and the walk eventually finishes back at the bridge - or car park - we started from.

Alternative walks in this locality are 1016 and 1201.

The walk is suitable for teenagers, senior citizens, and anyone in-between. It's good for dogs but unsuitable for wheelchairs and buggies. Suitable footwear will be anything flat soled, but after a period of rain (and in winter), boots will be needed due to very muddy tracks and paths. There are no refreshments or toilets on this route.
