Cross the road, walk between the two buildings and then follow the burn as it meanders west and then south. Probably a 5-10 min walk.

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue Pele tower up a remote hill or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.
