The Loch Kinord Circular route is 8.5K long, with good tracks although it can be muddy at times. It is reasonably flat with some short steeper sections, suitable for off road buggies and bikes. There are many lovely walks in this area, Dinnet is next to the fantastic Deeside Way , and this route runs next to the wonderful Burn o Vat Visitor centre, where there is a traditional cache and a spectacular Earth Cache( well worth a visit).
Loch Kinord is on a nature reserve with the Clarack Loch forming part of the route and Davan Loch ( an area of special scientific interest )nearby.
Look out for a huge variety of wildlife, including red squirrels , otters, grey legged geece, ospreys and mute swans. Look out also for a 9th centuary celtic stone ,and the iron age Crannog on Loch Kinord itself.
There are many water attractions, Loch Clarack , Loch Kinord, a disused curling pond and numerous burns on this route so please take appropriate care especially with young cachers.
