    trees from the south side of Mannoch Hill If the route is done north to south then there is an unclear cutoff of the track on Mannoch Hill which requires care as noted below Because of this the following description follows the north to south direction Apart from the boggy section the track is firm if wet in places with a stone surface From the car park just south of Bardonside a good track rises coinciding for a short distance with a wind farm access track onto the heather moor and into forestry The track goes through the forestry on Red Taingy crosses the Stripe of Loan on a good bridge and enters the Mannoch Hill area of forest At NJ 206 496 the right hand track is taken not the one to the left which heads for a small pool Then at NJ 204 492 the left hand track is taken which is a much less used looking track After about 250m on the left of the track on a bank there is a small cairn of stones At this point there is a small zigzag track to the left which enters the trees whose branches appear to close off access However pushing through gains access to the old road in a partly overgrown ride leading to a gate Once through the gate a burn has to be crossed and a very boggy section crossed Although the road still appears to exist under the sphagnum the best way to proceed is to use a single pine tree as a guide to picking up the track again heading south Heading north the tree also provides a guide to heading for the gate and onwards the track can be followed into the ride in the forestry From there south the track

    NJ 047 382 At this point the older looking track by the Ourack Burn should be followed until it turns to the West at NJ 045 395 just after crossing the Ourack Burn ford The old farm of Ourack is on the opposite bank on a dry raised area From this point a rough section of track runs for about 200m and stops beyond which there are some traces of footpath and a short section of old road However it is largely a matter of finding a way along the W side of the burn on the heathery bank through fairly boggy ground The route is towards a conifer plantation where an old metal gate is found in the fence Through this gate a track is followed in the trees but has numerous fallen branches on it It emerges at Lynagowan a ruin and a modern track leads onwards to the River Divie ford Once across this the track continues by Glenmore ruin and eventually takes a left turn down to Feakirk Bridge From here a tarred road leads to Bantrach and the end of the route However a better walking route is to take a track on the right
