Geocache Description:

A steep walk up through Glendoll Forest leading to stunning views

The Kilbo Path is an old drovers route stretching from Glen Prosen to the intersection of Glen Doll and Glen Clova. This path was also used by the Caterans - groups of cattle thieves - who frequented these parts. Nowadays the Kilbo Path is a popular 13km/8mile walk between Glen Doll and Prosen Lodge.

This part of the Kilbo Path takes you from the Doll car park up through the Glendoll forest to the point where you would join the Shank of Drumfollow. When you leave the forest, look to the North West for impressive views up Glen Doll and see if you can see the track left by Jock!!

Close to the cache, at the side of the path is a large flat rock which makes an ideal picnic spot

Although you are walking through the forest for most of the way and are sheltered, the cache is at a height of 595 metres, so be prepared for colder, windier conditions.

Parking is by a £2.00 donation to the Angus Ranger service, who also provide a route card service for walkers in the area. Leave a note of your details and route in the box at the ranger station. From the car park initially follow signs for the Doll Walk which will lead you towards the Kilbo Path.
