Start at the entrance to our Woodland Lodges and take the path up to Wellbank. Once at the top of the path, take a right onto the farm track and follow the road to the top of the farm and all the way around to bring you through the middle of our 9-hole golf course, towards the fishing ponds. The walk has a slight incline on the way up with great views over Dundee and Tay Estuary.
