Dunnottar Woods

2 miles (3 km)

These attractive woods in Stonehaven have miles of waymarked walking trails to try.
There's a parking area at the southern end of the woods by Glaslaw Bridge. From here you can pick up a nice path running along the Burn of Glaslaw. On the route you will pass follies and other structures of the Kennedy family, who once owned the woods. Look out for the old Shell House and Lady Kennedy's bath as you make your way through the site.
Dunnottar Wood is located just to the south of Stonehaven. To extend your walk you could follow Carron Water east to the coast and enjoy a walk along Stonehaven Bay.
About a mile to the south east you will find the splendid Dunnotar Castle. The 15th century ruined fortress sits on a rocky headland surrounded by steep cliffs. Dunnottar is best known as the place where theHonours of Scotland, the Scottish crown jewels, were hidden fromOliver Cromwell's invading army in the 17th century. It's an impressive sight and a great place to extend your outing.
