This scenic attraction is the Big Burn waterfall at the rocky entrance to the Big Burn gorge and along the seafront through mixed deciduous woodland, rich in flora and fauna. The flowers in May and June are a spectacular mix of primroses, bluebells, celandines, wood sorrel, campion and wild garlic. Only 20 minutes walk from the north end of Golspie. There are toilets, shops, pubs and a cafe at the start of the walk. A two-mile extension to the walk allows a visit to Dunrobin Castle.
The path, just above the water, crosses a footbridge between two rock walls, crossing back to the right side just beyond beneath a cascading side-stream. The burn is crossed twice more; ignore a fork path off to the right. The Big Burn offers a very sheltered walk with an air of mystery. Several picnic sites offer respite to the tired and hungry.
THE man who has made it a personal crusade to maintain Golspie’s Big Burn Walk has been awarded an MBE in the New Year Honours list for community service to the village. Read more
