Need to Know

The ticks in the area can carry Lyme disease. Dogs are allowed, but need to be under control due to sheep and ground-nesting birds. Local land managers may leave gates in open or closed position... Leave gates as you find them.

Description

This is an out and back trail starting and ending at the Queens View car park. It traverses the Delnabo Crown Estate; access is allowed per Scotland's "Right to Roam" laws. Keep to the driveway as you traverse the main part of the estate. When you pass the dog kennels, you are on the right pathway. Where driveway crosses the creek, pathway turns to dirt and gets steep. Follow up to the moor.

Flora & Fauna
