Turn right as you leave the car park and walk along the road, crossing the bridge over Glencoyne beck. Carry on until you come to a long straight drive up to Glencoyne Farm on your right. Then, take the track to the farm, carrying straight through the front garden. (Don’t worry about walking through the farm, as it’s a public right of way and the farmer won’t mind.)
Leave the farm and carry on up the slope and follow the path along the top of the gill on your right. You will soon spot the Seldom Seen cottages in the distance. Stay on the path and this will take you underneath the cottages and out into the open fell. Once past the cottages carry straight on for a short time and then bear left up a grassy slope towards the wood. Follow the path under the wall and you will come to a gate at the end of the wood.
Go through the gate and turn left over a stile and into the wood. Follow the path through the wood until you reach the cottages again. Follow the track all the way down to the A592 road. At the road go straight across and join the footpath, then turn left and take the path to the bottom of the hill. The path then joins the road which will take you past Glencoyne Farm drive and back to the car park.
