Route Description

From Brechin Business Park, cross the road and take the track sign posted for Brechin Equestrian Centre. Turn left at the track crossroads and continue until turning right at the junction with the road.

Continue downhill on the road, crossing the bridge and turning left onto the sign posted footpath shortly after. Start the short sharp climb up to Burghill Woods.

After briefly rejoining the road, the path veers left. Continue uphill keeping the large satellite dishes on your right and you will eventually rejoin the road.

At this point descend down the road turning right at the junction. Take the sign posted footpath on your left and continue down until you meet with the road. Crossing the road, proceed down the track opposite, turning left behind the houses at the bottom. At the junction with the road, turn right over the bridge and follow the road round as it hugs the river bank. Continue NW past the leisure centre and follow the road through the centre of Brechin, following the signposts for the A90 and Dundee. At the junction with the B9134, cycle along the signposted footpath back to the start or continue on and visit Brechin Castle Centre for a well deserved cuppa and slice of cake!
