From the Dess junction on the A93 (note road sign to Alford etc.) between Kincardine O'Neil and Aboyne, drive two miles to the crossroads, which lie one mile due west of Lumphanan Village. From that crossroads proceed north, signed towards Alford, slightly uphill, for almost half-a-mile. When you reach the houses, drive into the field on the right to park.
Wear suitable footwear. The linking farm trail, walked as a circuit, is about two-thirds-of-a-mile.
