The start and finish is approx 2km (walk/jog/bike) up the tarred track that runs south towards the hills.
Start straight ahead on the small forest track. After 500m turn left on main forestry road. The next section follows the previous route as far as East Lomond (CP1) and back to the Maiden Castle (Checkpoint 2 - 222069).
Drop off the west end of Maiden Castle and pick up a small track which traverses round towards West Lomond keeping the trees a few hundred meters on your right. Reach a gap in a wall with a gate (Checkpoint 3 - 205072) Cross gate and turning slightly up and left pick up a small track passing some small quarry workings. This takes you round to a rocky gully. Climb the gully and then up to West Lomond.
Take the track heading west from the top of West Lomond. Branch left after 200m. Reach the fence (marshall). Descend a very steep grassy gully. Good luck! Round the Bannet Stane (189071 - Checkpoint 4).
Climb back up left to a fence (original ascent). Follow it to a stile. Follow a grassy track and cut off it left to a stream source (Checkpoint 5 - 195071). Make a descending traverse back to the gate entering the woods (204075).
After entering the forest, go 300m ahead then turn right, up the forestry track. After about 700m turn left down the small marked track to join the original ascent track and back to the start/finish.
