We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

30 Oct 2022 Autumn

This is a relatively gentle route for the Angus Glens but there is no mobile signal and the route should not be attempted without the proper equipment and knowledge, Scotland's weather can turn so fast, Mountaineering Scotland have an excellent website.

I did this route in reverse (from Brechin to Auchronie), and it's a lovely way to do it: you begin in the town of Brechin and walk out on a main country road that dwindles to a single track up to the Iron Age Catherthuns forts and suddenly Glen Lethnot and the Angus Glens are laid out before you.

It's a steady road walk winding up pretty Glen Lethnot to Stoneyford where in theory I should have been able to turn onto a path up the Clash of Wirren. I could not find this path and instead took the strenuous path up West Craig, down the other side and back up the other side to rejoin the lost path, a difficult detour. If anyone else can find the path I would be very grateful not to go round!

From there a relatively gentle walk on a 4x4 track across the col before coming up and over and down the farm at Dalbrach. If you are coming from Auchronie finding the path I came down is a bit tricky, just after you come out the other side of the farmyard there is a small cairn (picture attached) and you double back there. The farmer was one of the only people I saw that day, dipping sheep in the pouring rain, but still pretty cheerful. The River North Esk was very picturesque in full spate, although I did drop my phone which took a bit of finding in the rain...

The SlowWays path cuts the corner here going round the back of Blackness, but there is a good fence between this path and the road so I went round by the road rather than climbing.

From there it's an easy road walk up the valley to Auchronie.

So there is a lot of time spent on roads, but only a short bit of it on busy roads.
