The small village of Dunnino offers a number of very enjoyable countryside walks.
The area is stunning in the Spring and Summer months and this route is ideal for walkers and cyclists alike.
I found this route when geocaching with my kids and there are a number of geocaches hidden away in the surrounding area.
The route begins at a small siding on the outskirts of the village. There are plenty of places nearby to park if this spot is taken. You can also choose to start in the car park of the nearby church.
Follow the roadside path (B9131) down to the crossroads and turn left on to a minor road a follow it until you reach the sign for the Dunino Church.
Follow the road to the church (a nice place to explore) and then head on to a track that follows the course of the Dunino Burn. This is a nice part of the route although it may not be suitable for people who struggle with uneven paths and steps.
There are a lot of ancient pagan stone carvings and unusual features hidden away in the undergrowth making it interesting to explore.
Leaving the burn path you head out on to the main road on the Northern side of the village. The route then heads in to the countryside past the grounds of Stravithie Castle. This section of the walk offers plenty of wildlife for you spot including roe deer, squirrels, butterflies and a wide array of birds.
The route then turns towards the South through farmland. The nearby farm is fairly busy so take care on this section of road and especially when passing the farmyard itself.
At the crossroads turn left to head back to Dunino. Again there are farms nearby so be aware of farm vehicles. Eventually you will reach the crossroad leading back on to the B9131 and back to your start point.
My kids and I really enjoyed this route and we will no doubt walk it again in the Summer months.
