I headed to Cullen for this walk but rather than going to the beach I headed up to the woods for a stroll round Crannoch wood and loch. With some beautiful views of the sea and the Bin Hill. This is quite a short walk and perfect in any season. Wear suitable footwear as maybe a little muddy.
Distance: 2.75 miles Time: 1hr Level: Easy with some elevation. Terrain: Grass track, woodland trail and pavement Access: Arrive by car parking is available in the square. There is a regular number 35 bus running from Elgin to Aberdeen.
Route: The walk starts off in the square in Cullen head up Seafield Road past the Antiques Centre and then take a left along Seafield Place. When you reach the corner before heading along Logie Drive take a right up the grass track. There is a waymarker here. At the junction at the top take a right going away from Cullen.
A little ahead you will come to a gate go through the gate and turn left and go towards the ruined Logie House that you can see in the distance.
Just before you come to the ruin take a right at the waymarker, then take another right as you head towards the woods. When you reach the woods take a left when you see the path into the woods, then follow the track it will turn to the right Go past the small Loch I did explore a little here. Get back on the track and keep going straight ahead.
You will pass the Den!
At the next junction take a right to return to Cullen. You will go over the bridge of the old railway line then skirt past a small carpark before reaching the outskirts of Cullen.
Careful walk along the track next to the road till you return back into Cullen and back to the square.
