Dog Friendly
Yes, but keep dogs on lead during the lengthy ascent and descent when the path is close to the Old Military Road. There are gaps in the dry-stone wall, and vehicles drive fast on the long straight.
Family Friendly
Yes, if children are used to walks of this distance and overall ascent.
There are public toilets in Torphins, Aboyne and Banchory. The community toilets in nearby Kincardine O'Neil have been closed during the Covid 19 epidemic.
Potarch Café and Restaurant, if open. Finzean Farm Shop and Tea Room. Take-away sandwiches at the Kincardine O'Neil village shop. Other options in Torphins, Aboyne and Banchory.
