This is a fantastic short walk for all the family only a few miles out of Elgin. It is beautiful no matter what season it is.
Distance: 1 1/2miles Time: 1hr Level: Easy with a little elevation Terrain: Woodland paths can be a little muddy and uneven. Some steps Access: Arrive by car, Millbuies Country Park is situated in the village of Fogwatt around 6 miles from Elgin. Postcode is IV30 8FW. There is a good size carpark.
Route: Leaving the carpark head for the Millbuies sign passing by the house and you come to the large stone cairn.
Follow the path till you reach the loch. We went straight on here passing the boats then the wooded hide. There is footbridge a 1/3 of the way down the loch.
Keep your eyes peeled for ducks on the loch. Further on there is a path your left that takes you up to higher ground and rejoins the path you are on further on. I like to stick to the lower ground beside the loch.
When you reach the end of the loch loop back by going over the footbridge and up the steps.
Return by walking along this side to you come back to the start.
Don’t forget to visit Willow & Birch for coffee and cake after!
