Walk (187) Burghead-Cummingston-Clarkly Hill Circuit (Moray)
This is a pleasant coastal walk from the harbour area in Burghead. The route at first climbs onto the headland of the promontory on which the village is built, where there is a fine viewpoint and interesting visitor centre. This position also provides the best view of what little is visible of a massive Pictish fort. There then follows an enjoyable section along the Moray Coastal Trail before the route then rises to the edge of Cummingston. We then gently ascend along the ridge of Clarkly Hill, providing wonderful views towards sea and land. With clear visibility, the eastern hills of northern Scotland make for a satisfying long-distance vista. In the final section, the route descends to take in a corner of the mature Roseisle pine forest before breaking out onto the golden sands of Burghead Bay … 😀

Dog Days …!
… at Cawdor Castle today we remembered the last time we were there back in 2010 when we had an elderly labrador leading the way on our walk to where the Cawdor Burn meets the River Nairn. Both were in spate on that day but that didn’t deter the bold Stuart from diving in! We panicked … but of course he took it all in his stride … or doggy paddle … 😀
