The walk starts at Cottage farm, along a track to the ruined St. John’s Church, then descending to the beach at Gamrie Bay and along to Gardenstown Harbour.  From the harbour the walk goes along the beach and path below cliffs to Crovie and then climbs up to Crovie head and along the cliffs via Collie Head to Troup Head, finishing at Northfield Farm.

The final part of the walk involves some rough walking and through a few gorse patches so there will an alternative route from Crovie Head to Northfield Farm via tracks and minor roads. This is shorter (4.0 miles/ 6.5km).
