The Den at Newtyle

Bit behind with my blogging again, but I am continuing the Newtyle Path Network theme.  I went to the post office in Newtyle and purchased all the local path Network walk leaflets and very well done they are as well, full of information.  There is a car park just further down the road from the Post Office/Shop from where you can head off on whatever of the walks you choose. I was wanting to walk to the tower at the top of Kinpurney Hill after photographing it the day before.  It is a straightforward walk along a fairly quiet road until you come to Denhead Farm and up a track into the 'Den'.  There is an old mill pond which is fed by the burn coming down the hill and the path slowly winds it's way upwards through lush trees and vegetation and you will pass a seat if you need a wee rest.  You finally come to a gate at the top of the den where the landscape changes into grassland.
