Overview

'Sadly we have no survey of the whole of this route. However, it has been reported to us that access is dissuaded by a painted notice on the gateposts at the Kinloch Lodge road end. Although this is the line of the Moine Path right of way, a suggested alternative is to use the estate track that lies 400m further north along the public road. This passes the derelict Kinloch House and joins the Moine Path at NC551525. Any recent survey of this right of way would be very welcome indeed ...'

A part of the (rather elusive) North Sea Trail, between John O'Groats and Cullen: 'The trail is not a continuous route, but a network of paths and trails. These avoid main roads, and feature some of the most interesting and scenic sections of the coast.' ALERT Unfortunately, a Moray Firth Trail Website and a Page Turning e-Brochure originally referenced on the Website no longer seem accessible; nor now a 32-page PDF Leaflet.  But the Moray Firth Partnership itself continues to be active.
