Walk Description
Mix of minor roads, tracks, rough footpaths and rocky beach. Route is up the Raddery Road, short detour into Arabella Woods, past some forestry to the top of the Fairy Glen and then along the Eathie Road and through Flowerburn woods up to Learnie. Back down along the minor road and turning off to Hillockhead, using cliff path to get down to the shore. Follow the shore to Rosemarkie (beach café may be open). Scenic return to Fortrose via Swallow Den. NB – the shore route from Hillockhead to Rosemarkie is tidal so we may need to do the walk anticlockwise instead of clockwise to fit with the tides.
