Dunnyduff and the Den – paths around Keith
Wed, 17 June 2020 @ 17:30 - 19:30
A three-mile evening stroll around Keith, including woodland, good views, and the glorious Falls of Tarnash.
This 3-mile walk begins at the Map Board at Keith Square (Reidhaven Square). Cross the A96, and continue along Bridge Street, following signs for Balloch, Dunnyduff and Falls of Tarnash. Passing the 1901 site of Keith’s first 9-hole Golf Course (later ploughed up for WW2’s “Dig for Victory” campaign), head up steps to a viewpoint. Cross the bridge to view the Falls, where there was once a meal mill. Re-cross the bridge to return via Dunnyduff Woods. There is plenty of opportunity on this walk to enjoy wildlife (including deer), and loads of different plants and flowers. This walk is being held on behalf of Moray Ramblers (www.morayramblers.org.uk), who organise a variety of walks around Moray throughout the year.
A combination of roadside pavements, minor roads, green tracks and some rougher paths with several steep inclines. Suitable for a wide range of users in the low sections, but in the countryside, the route is appropriate for more able, energetic persons. There are no stiles or gates to negotiate but some steps exist in Dunnyduff Wood.
