This links enables a Mini Cateran Trail to be done (usually over 2 days, stopping overnight at Spittal of Glenshee). The section from Cray to Kirkmichael follows an ancient right of way over moor and farmland, pathless (waymarkers) and boggy in places (major work in 2018 has improved the route), it has a remote feel and would be a great walk in its own right if transport could be arranged.
Minor road, moorland paths, farm tracks, some pathless sections where map and navigation skills are needed.
No public transport to Cray. Kirkmichael is served by a bus that links Blairgowrie and Pitlochry.
