Stonehaven circular, OS Map 45
Distance 4 miles/6 km
Provided the braes at Stonehaven are still closed, and there is every likelihood they will be, we shall start our walk at the Temple south of Stonehaven and make our way along the cliffs on the picturesque path to Dunnottar Castle. After this, a lane with good views to the North and West leads from the Mains of Dunnottar to Dunnottar Woods. Here we can see Lady Kennedy's bath and the Shell House before ending our walk at the edge of the woods, from where the bus will take us to the harbour and the Marine Hotel where we have lunch. Please also note that, if the wind is blowing from the south, we shall reverse the walk, finishing at the Temple.
Lunch 12.30pm at the Marine Hotel, Stonehaven, varied menu available
Meet at Culter Village Hall at 9.30 am. Return 3.30pm approximately
