The route we are looking at will start over brews at Charlie’s Coffee Bar at the Mugdock Country Park Visitor Centre (3 miles north of Milnagavie) before taking in parts of the John Muir Way and West Highland Way. We will recce and post the route sometime January. Guides Dave Stewart and Rachel Miller (Tayside Mountain Rescue Team).

We will meet over morning refreshments at the Loch Kinord Hotel in the Royal Deeside village of Dinnet. From there we will explore the Muir of Dinnet National Nature Reserve by skirting the north shores of Loch Kinord to the Vat Gorge and back via the south shore. This is a magical place, rich in flora and fauna, glacial features, and evidence of Iron Age settlements.

This islet sits on the Highland boundary fault-line and was referred to by Sir Walter Scott in his poem “Lady of the Lake”. It has been used as a hunting forest since the times of Robert the Bruce (deer can swim the narrow channel from the mainland) and the Clan McGregor burial ground includes some of Rob Roy’s ancestors. This is one of our shorter routes at just 3.5kms but there is so much to see! Guides Dave Stewart and Jamie Grant (Tayside Mountain Rescue Team).

This is a gorgeous walk that will take in the beautiful River Tweed, Iron Age hill forts, and the wonderful views over the Borders hills that inspired the likes of Sir Walter Scott. We will be on well-established tracks throughout with one or two muddy sections.  There are a couple of gentle but sustained gradients that are very doable as we won’t be in a rush!
