We've been to the Burn O' Vat before, but after finding the WalkHighlands website, decided to try something a bit more strenuous than the 30 minute walks. We chose the Culblean Circuit and set off in lovely blue skies with a light breeze. Heading up to the viewpoint, we got a great view of Loch Kinord. Still climbing along a single track, we got to a 4x4 track and headed even higher up hill before a panoramic view of farmlands between pine trees opened up in front of us. Heading down the track we got to a farm and had to cross a boggy section before crossing the B9119 and walking beside some farms. We headed past Loch Kinord again and then back to the visitor centre.
