INTRODUCTION:

The Kirkhill path is part undulating earth surface and part tar road surface which is well used by local fisherman and runs for part of its length alongside the River Lossie.

THE ROUTE AND FEATURES OF INTEREST:

The River holds brown trout, sea trout and salmon and a fishing permit can be obtained locally. Starting at the southern end the route goes through open fields where livestock may be grazing. It crosses over the Lossie by way of a narrow bridge near to the St Andrews Church burial site steeped in local history. Passing on through Kirkhill Farm, keeping to the waymarkers as you go, the path emerges onto a tarred farm lane and comes out to the Calcots Road.
