A very pleasant walk with great views from the top of Ben Vrackie.

As my priority when walking is to avoid other people it was just as well that I started the walk at 09:30 as on the way down I started to encounter several others on the way up.

Stage 5 refers to the waymarked path - what it doesn't mention is that once up on the moorland there is a fork with no indication of which branch to take. In the event it doesn't matter as both paths join up again after a short distance.
