Route Description

On the Linn Road close to the Co-op and petrol station, go through the main basalt pillar entrance. Take the path to the right and after about 200 metres you can either take the left fork that loops through the meadow or the longer path on the right that takes you to the viewpoint and path that flanks both sides of the stream. Small bridges go over the stream. There are two informaton panels to read about some interesting nature facts. A trim trail provides 6 different exercises.
