Print Walksheet:

Starting at the Square in Inverbervie follow  the A92 South for 200m then turn left on to Kirkburn. Follow the road towards  the North Sea and Bervie Bay until you reach the Cycle path on your right. Head  South towards open country and follow the track round the coast past Horse  Crook Bay.

Soon you will reach Gourdon, built on the  Mearns coast as a fishing village, and like Johnshaven, the fishermen of  former times employed the unusual custom of line fishing rather than net  fishing techniques, but nowadays the harbour is mainly used for creel fishing  boats and pleasure craft.

Continue south to reach the cluster of  cottages at Haughs Bay and cross a bridge over the burn. The track continues  to follow the coast running past the grounds of Lathallen School on your  right and East Long Skelly on the coast to your left. The track ends shortly  and becomes a tarmac road. Bypass a caravan park on your right and stay with  the shore road as it enters Johnshaven. Continue to the Harbour area and you  will arrive at our destination, The Anchor Hotel.

A meal bas been booked at 6:00pm for 6:30pm  in the name of the Blairgowrie and District Hillwalking Club in the “Bar  Restaurant” and if arriving early, the bar will be open for refreshment. The  coach for the return journey to Alyth and Blairgowrie will be waiting nearby.

 

Approx.  walking distance: 7.5 km.

Approx.  walking time:  2hrs.
