Crannoch Wood Walk

(Time: approx. 45 mins)

From the Tourist Office turn left up Seafield Street, following the A98 out of town.

Continue past the B9018 junction - on your right - until you come to a green road sign marked A98. Here, turn left into the Car Park. Pass a locked metal gate, which is across the old tarred roadway.

Follow the track up through beech trees and cross the bridge over the disused railway line. Bear right and climb the gentle slope until you come to a tree-trunk seat. Turn left and keep going upwards until you see the Crannoch Loch. Follow the path that runs along the left side of the loch until you start descending, and meeting up with a farm road. Turn right, leaving the wood, and follow the road upwards.

Reaching the top, you will have a wonderful view of the Bin Hill, part of Cullen and the sweep of the bay across to Portknockie. Keep on the farm road, circling left back towards Cullen. Above the Caravan Site, follow the track into the Playing Field, and then into the town again.
