The paths through Dunnottar woods are clearly marked and easy to follow. There are some quirky points of interest such as the old ice house and the walled garden. We were lucky to visit on a sunny day too.

Plenty of variety at the woods. Gentler grade trails to open quarry and fields to steeper grade trails. There are better "hidden gem" trails off the beaten path. Bit of history at hangmans hill, lady Kennedy bath, areas for picnics and a few parking areas....More

Dunnottar Woods provide a variety of walks within a relatively small area and has streams, slopes, some very old trees as well as man-made structures including a walled garden and a shell-house. There's plenty of car parking as well as a picnic area.

A great place to walk. Home to many dog walkers and popular with local residents. Make sure to meander off the trails to see the walls of Lady Kennedy's House, Lady Kennedy's Bath, The Shell Hoosie (Shell House) and the Gallows Hill and Ice House....More
