Re: 'lowland' camping protocols

Julie
Andy,

If going from Tarfside, I’d recommend heading north on the track up the Water of Tarf (?), then east to walk the whole ‘ridge’ from Craig Soales, over Mount Battock and ending at Clachnaban with your first view of the coast. What a memorable day on my first challenge before tackling the Fetteresso and onto Dunnottar Castle for my finish. I took a bus to Montrose on the main road just south of the castle.
Hi Julie,

That is indeed the plan , with a night at Miller's Bog . Doesn't sound the most salubrious of hangouts. The end of what could be a long day given I'll be starting somewhat west of Tarfside .

Re: 'lowland' camping protocols

It doesn't sound ideal, but in fact you've picked a good area.
