The walk begins in Balkello Community Woodland park and takes in a circuit of the 'high tops' of the Sidlaw Hills: Craigowl and Auchterouse Hill. A relatively straightforward walk on grassy and generally well-made paths. There are several gates and stiles along the route. A steady climb up to the two main summits otherwise nothing overly strenuous. Superb views towards Dundee and the Firth of Tay as well as north across Strathmore to the Angus Glens.
