The Badalair Details
The climb uphill past auchronie farm is fairly steep but has outstanding views of loch lee and Glen Mark to enjoy.
It’s easy to miss the track at the top of the hill in the heather where you need to turn sharp right. Follow a southeast direction for a short distance before contouring round the hill to Badalair. Then it’s downhill all the way!
Note: There is an electric fence on the track around 1.5 km up from auchronie and another at the bottom of the steeper downhill section from Badalair.
On the downhill, when you reach some ruins, the track takes a sharp right which isn’t obvious (don’t go straight ahead).
Park at Tarfside car park where there are toilets and a campsite. head east out of the car park over the bridge and straight ahead off the main road and on to
a good track. Follow this for just over 2 km until you are approaching the farm ‘Westbank’. Take the less obvious straight ahead route keeping to the north of the farm buildings rather than veering left down through the farm. Continue through a gate sign posted ‘invermark’ to the road.
This is an exposed hillside route and you should be suitably equipped and prepared.
