A wee walk at Ballathie

Parking at Ballathie Hotel you can start this walk half way up the 'back' drive.  The track is the remains of the old Scottish Midland Junction Railway.  Is is very overgrown at the moment but you will see some remaining features from the railway days.  The Old Chapel which I blogged about in September 2010 has sadly deteriorated even more and the roof has totally collapsed.  A real highlight of the walk was the amount of butterflies fluttering about.  I don't know how far along you can actually walk along the old railway, in theory probably to Stanley, I shall check it out.  We just double backed and walked back round to the car via the main driveway.
