An excellent circuit walk beginning in a secluded glen along the North Esk River and opening out past the North Esk Reservoir and over Patie's Hill. This walk can be particularly muddy especially where it follows the river.

The North Esk Valley walk is an excellent walk. The directions were spot on. I never needed to bring out the map and without the directions I would never have found the walk and the directions kept me on the route all the way. Great.
