On stage 5 of the route notes, the section where it states “carry on for a further 2.5 klms or so till you approach 2 trees and just before you reach the tree,s turn right along a path”.
I suggest this be changed, as before you get to those tree,s there is about another 6 tree,s on approach and people who are not familiar with the area could become confused...especially on misty foggy days.

How about, “ carry on for about 2.5klms or more until you approach some tree,s on your left. Carry on passed these tree,s until you come to two trees standing along next to a still on the fence. Turn right here down along a path which winds down through the heather and up to meet another path at a T turn right here and follow this path all the way back to the start.
