A new leaflet has been published by Angus Council, Paths for All and the Birkhill Inn showing four paths across the Sidlaw hills around Muirhead.
The Check Bar road at Piperdam gets its name from a tollhouse which stood near its junction with the Coupar Angus turnpike (now A923). Centuries ago it was the main ‘road’ from Lundie to Fowlis. The Drover’s road at Backmuir Wood where cattle were in the past driven on this track from country districts to market. The Railway Path at Dronley: This section of the old Dundee and Newtyle Railway has been turned into a superb path, suitable for all users, providing splendid views. The Blairfield Road at Birkhill.
