***The stile over a barbed wire fence at Waypoint 9 has been removed. To cross the fence without a stile is difficult and may cause injury. We recommend the alternative route to Battlehill Wood which unfortunately misses out the outward section to Kinnoir Wood. See new instructions at Waypoint 4 and new route map at the end of the Route Guide PDF***
This walk provides an attractive mix, taking in Huntly’s pleasant townscape and the gently undulating farmland and woods surrounding the town. There are very satisfying open views from Brunstane Hill on the edge of Kinnoir Forest, and from Battle Hill, a prehistoric site.
