This a nice and easy to follow walk through the countryside surrounding Newport-on-Tay and one my dog Petra really enjoys.
The route can easily be started at different points but I prefer starting at the car park to the East of the Tay Bridge.
Leaving the car park head towards the shore and follow the road for approximately 1km until you reach a turning on the right (OS Grid Reference NO 4370 2903). Carefully cross over the road on to the gated farm track opposite.
The track is easy walking but can be muddy and provides very pleasant scenery as it takes you through the countryside. You will follow the track for approximately 2km. The track skirts around the base of Craig Law veering West and meets a minor road.

This road will lead you back towards Newport-on-Tay and is pretty easy walking. The road is normally fairly quiet but please do take care and keep any dogs close at hand. The road stretches for a little 2km until it meets the A92 when you need to cross over to the road opposite. Follow this road a short distance to the t-junction and cross over on to the path alongside the road leading to the town (turn right).
Follow the road for 500m and take the turning left onto Kilnburn Road which will lead you down to the shore and Tay Street. Turn right and follow this road along the shore and take some time to enjoy the view over the Tay. Follow the road for a further 7800m and you will be returned to the car park where you started the route.
This is a nice walk to enjoy when the weather is fine and when with a group of friends.
