Crossing the Ashdale Burn immediately above the Falls, the route takes runners through the forest to join a Forestry road which continues northward for two miles above and behind Whiting Bay.

The course then turns right descending down a footpath to Hawthorne Farm. Runners turn right here and contour southward along the farm track, through a wicket gate into a field, and over a footbridge through the Fairy Glen, and onto a footpath which takes us to the Golf Club road.

The route continues contouring  south till it descends over a footpath to the north bank of the Ashdale Burn, and emerges in Montrose Terrace to the finish.
