In The Forest of Ae Walk


If you want an easy, mainly level, riverside walk along good paths within a predominantly woodland environment, this circuit will suit you. The walk combines sections of three waymarked trails within the Forest of Ae and follows the Water of Ae for most of the way. 

There are some alternatives to the full route and these are described in the text. There is a shorter alternative of five miles within the circuit and a hill loop within the route may be omitted altogether. Part of the outward section along the west bank of the Water of Ae is accessible to wheelchairs.  

Practically anywhere on the route is suitable for picnics and there are several tables and seats provided for this purpose.
