Route Description

From Broomfield BMX track car park, cycle up Broomfield Road to the Industrial Estate. Follow cycle route under the A92 Bridge through Borrowfield until the barriers. Turn left onto Newhame Road, passing the school and then turn right and go under the rail bridge via a metal walkway. Follow this farm road until Dubton Cottages and turn left along the road. After around 500m turn uphill past West Mains of Hedderwick to the road junction at Hillhead of Hedderwick. Turn right onto the main road then after 250m turn left into Rosemount Estate.

The estate has some new paths and some small downhill sections can be found. Emerge out of the estate at grid 702613. From here head down into the Hillside village. Cross the main A937 passing the Hillside Hotel and follow this road out past the old distillery. Emerge on the A92 and turn left towards the Northwater Road Bridge. Cross the bridge and then take a sharp right hand turn towards ‘St. Cyrus Beach’.

The new Montrose cycle route then starts from here, crossing the spectacular North Water Rail Bridge. Continue along this new cycle route which is well defined and marked. This route follows the old railway line before emerging at the Aerodrome. Continue on this route to get back to the starting point.
