 A short walk along a minor road and then a farm track brings us to the Bothkennar pools. Two lagoons next to the river Forth that is full of various different bird and animal species. A short walk along the shore path of the the River Forth, you pass the Skinflats lagoons, just like the Bothkennar lagoons, it is rich in various birds and If you are lucky you may spot a rare sighting of the Baikal Teal. Not long after crossing the Kincardine bridge, you are soon walking on forest tracks through the Devilla forest, where you may spot a red squirrel or an otter in one of the lochs. Within a couple of miles of leaving the  Devilla forest, you soon arrive at the most scenic village in Scotland Culross, where you will have the opportunity to visit Culross Palace.                                                                                                                                              Walk details: 17.7/11 miles 5-6 hours  145m/476ft total ascent
