Description:-
Coming out of the car park turn towards the traffic lights and head right. Carry on along this main road until it swings left, carry straight on onto a quieter road. Soon after you turn left past a forestry sign for Dunnottar Woodland Park. Head up a steep climb and then turn sharp left close to the top onto a narrow trail with some roots. This continues around the north edge of the woods. At the end instead of going down the steps, if you continue around the field you come to a shallow rooty ramp which allows easier access to the lower path. Head right along this trail and continue right at the next junction before going straight across at the crossroads. Carry on along the track but cut right and drop down one of the steep descents into the old quarry. Carry on out the west entrance into the car park. Here you turn left onto a small path. This takes you to the road. Cross the road and go up the track. Then carry on past the field staying right. Once your past the field take the first left and then carry straight on at the the next. As you approach a picnic area turn right and continue up the narrow trail. Take the second right and go down the fast downhill trail and turn right. Continue for around 5 metres then turn left up the obvious path. Turn left at the top and continue down the trail. Turn right towards a bridge. Cross the bridge and cycle up the steps and rooty slope. Carry on along the top staying high until the path leaves the top and passes a "valley" take a right across this "valley" and carry no up the other side along a trail. This climbs slowly toward the road and then dives right back down as you reach it. The downhill takes you to another road which you join turning left and then almost imediately right and then right again down a short steep bit. The trail then continues along a camber and gets to the shell house, a small building and head up right. Continue straight across the cross roads and then kepp going until you reach steep stairs down to a road. Turn left at the top onto a narrow path along the edge of the slope. This trail joins a path that drops down back into the quarry car park. Turn out of the car park across the road anto a small singletrack by the road this continues along and rejoins the road. Continue down the hill until you reach the top of a set of stairs. Drop down the very steep slope to the left of these and turn right along the wide path. This trail continues until you reach the bottom of three steps back up to the road. Go up these and make your way back to the Market Square Car Park.

At the ned of this road turn left. Cross a small bridge then turn right up the hill. The road curves around to the left. After this turn right to continue climbing. This takes you to the Swanley car park. Follow the track turning left at the first junction and then right aat the second. Climb for a short distance then descend, always looking to the left for a path leading into the trees. Follow this path down until it meets a path. Turn right onto the path and follow it until it reaches the road. Turn right up the road and cycle almost back to the Swanley car park. Just before you get there turn left down a track which bends round to the right turning into a singletrack. Follow this till a junction. Turn right up the very steep hill. At the top go straight across the cross roads and climb onto the hillside. At the next junction follow the grassy path down the small valley. The path then climbs out of the valley and descends the left hand edge. This turns left at a plantation and joins the main track. Turn right and then drop down to the slug road. Turn right and follow it back into Stonehaven.
