Dunbeath Strath provides a walk with a fine variety of interest. Beautiful silver-birch woodland borders the stream and the rocky gorge whilst the open moors above provide expansive views. There is a wealth of archeological remains along the way. Those looking for an easier walk can simply follow the route as far as the Prisoner's Leap.
Clear riverside path for the first section. The climb up to the track following this is steep and the ascent of Cnoc na Maranaich is over pathless and extremely wet moorland.
Buses to Dunbeath.
Riverside car park on edge of Dunbeath.
