Glorious April weather sunshine all day. Parked at Glen Livet near Tomnavoulin. Low level walk along good paths next to River Livet for a couple of hours before you come to the old farmhouse and steading. Could turn off before this to join the Smugglers Path.
Starts to climb gradually after the old buildings as you join Mortons Way. It's quite a steep climb up the zigzag path to the top of Corryhabbie Hill. glorious views, lovely and quiet. Couldn't carry on over the pathless ridge as the jack russell couldn't cope with the heather so retraced our steps which meant we were out 7 and half hours by the time we got back but it was a lovely day and a good walk.
