This is a family-friendly itinerary that involves no public roads, offering various side options to extend the route.
The route starts at the Freuchies car park, close to Kirkton of Glenisla in the Cateran Ecomuseum.
From the car park the route follows the track to the left, passing Loch Shandra. The route follows the gravel track up the hill past the Tulloch cottage and flattens out, passing Craigie Hill on the right.
Here are various other tracks to explore as well, but the route continues straight over the crossroads down to Glenmarkie Lodge.
The track to the right takes you past the lodge and over the Glenmarkie track back to Freuchies.
