Fantastic route and my daughter, 8, really enjoyed the walk, plenty for her to view and talk about but I think it's less of a beginner and more moderate hike in places. We seen lots of people doing it in trainers but I would highly recommend boots as it's very uneven and rocky in parts but overall, it has beautiful views, lots to discuss, interesting landscape and plants. Word of warning if you have a dog, beware there was lots of people (probably due to lockdown) who's dogs had little to no recall, one even tried to take my daughters sandwich from her hand when we were sat having our picnic, owner did nothing! (This isn't a problem just at this site, it's an issue generally at the moment, so wouldn't deter me from returning).

Nice little hike but some quite rough patches. Definitely more of a moderate hike then an easy one.

Great trail - some steep sections, however, the paths are very well maintained. Our dog loved the climb and racing through the heather at the top of the crags. Beautiful views from the top.

Great trail following the red route signs the way round we went ascended simonside first which was the steepest part but easy to do as path was laid out throughout the route would recommend and the dog also loved it!
