Not much more than a Sunday afternoon dog walk, but I thought I'd post it, as I struggled to find any info on this wall anywhere online.

This can be a short circular walk or a 10km walk if you add on going into Stonehaven for chips or Ice Cream. This one is the short circular back to the car.

Leaving to A92 southbound at the old road into Stonehaven, this is one way until the lay-by where you park.
Cross the road back in the direction you drove in and there's a path into the woods. Follow this to under the railway viaduct where the path continues down steps then ahead to the shore line

The rocks here are the east end of the Highland boundary fault. At the end of the path turn right down through the shoreline and rock pools. The path rises up through the grass at the end of Skatie to Garron point. Onwards from the up along the edge of the golf course. Don't be tempted to go down along the shore at Craigeven bay as we did, as you would have to be a mountain goat to get back up to the golf course at the other end :D

Follow the edge of the golf course to the remains of the old Chapel and graveyard. From here we went back past the front of the golf course to the car, but there is a path into Stonehaven.
