The walk is an interesting way to reach Halkirk, the first planned town in Scotland. You can see various birds diving in and out of the river. Also when the season is 'on' there are many people fishing along the riverside; there is a 'catch and release' policy on the river, that means that any fish caught has to be put back into the river. Also along the way is the added bonus of walking a myriad of paths that have been set up by the owners at Geiss Farm and there is an old ruined distillery next to the fast-flowing waterfall.

Please note that this is a linear walk; return is by regular bus from Halkirk.
