Starting around the golf course at the Gleneagles hotel, it follows forest roads over to the A823. Turn right at the middleton Junction, and take the track through the gate towards the birks of Tullibardine. It picks up the old railway line in this woodland, and crosses the road, leaving the line at East Third. Takes the track opposite over to the A823 again, take a quick right and enter Hedgers Wood. This leads you to a sort of track for horses back accorss the moorland to the Golf Course
