Walk 3-6: The Lost Road: Clugston to the Cock Inn

This walk follows the route of a former road across lonely moors and linking isolated farms, providing an atmospheric walk


The route follows a lost road across the lonely moors of the Northern Machars from the Spittal Bridge on the River Bladnoch before descending through a picturesque gorse-covered landscape to the Luce Bay coast at Auchenmalg.

The track connects a succession of farms, some active and others derelict, reflecting  the changing agricultural scene.

The area is full of folklore and interesting wildlife and gives fine views of the hills and coast.

The walk ends with a warm welcome at The Cock Inn for refreshments.
