The Steading at Newmill is situated on The Lunan Burn midway between Lochs Clunie and Marlee. There is a small cottage garden with a fish pond that leads on to the wild flower meadow that, hopefully, will be carpeted with cowslips. A bridge over the tail-race of the old mill is the start of the woodland walk around two ponds and for more than 0.5km along the Lunan Burn with displays of wood anemones, lady's smock and primoses. The area is a haven for wildlife with beavers burrowing into the banks of the mill race.
Three miles west of Blairgowrie on the A923. About 600 metres after the Kinloch Hotel in the direction of Dunkeld take the track on the left, just after a mobile phone mast and a breeze block wall. There is parking for ten vehicles on a paved area, and ample parking in a neighbour's field, provided the ground is not soft.
