A steady climb to an anicient fort and great viewpoint.

Part of the Forestry Commission's Tay Forest Park, this path is suitable for both walking and mountain bikes.  You reach the fort, and a strange line of Victorian cairns, through mixed broadleaved woodland and then a recent plantation of Sitka spruce, which will be felled for its timber.  There are options to carry on deeper into the forest for a longer outing, and there is space for car parking at the start.
