What an exciting walk! Starts off gently enough but soon turns into a narrow, slippery path frequently clinging to the edge of variously steep, vertical and overhanging crags above a white water Findhorn. Difficult to photograph due to the vegetation but occasionally enough of a view opens up to get a picture or two.

A clear warning that steep cliffs should keep to the paths.

But a gentle start.

Another warning.

Some viewpoints are fenced off a bit.
