Comments: A lovely, relatively flat walk that takes in some of the ancient history of Deeside: evidence of the earliest settlements in the area in the form of stone circles, and "the crannog" - what is believed to be a man-made island created by iron-age dwellers to protect themselves from attack. 

Finally, there is the beautiful "Kinord Stone" a intricately carved celtic cross which stands overlooking Loch Kinord and whose precise origins are unknown. 

The beginning and end of the walk is a bit boring, there is about half a mile of walking through the woods with not much to see until you get to the vicinity of the loch but it is worth it for the views over the loch and the interesting spots.

  9. And just because you’re renting a bigger vehicle, that doesn’t mean you have to spend a small fortune on car hire. Hire a minibus in advance and you’re much more likely to find a better deal minibus hire blackpool

  30. ​Concrete can not only be a porous material, but it can also be temperamental. Depending on the conditions in which it was poured, the mixture that was used and even how much was used can all play an important role in how your concrete steps, retaining wall, or even concrete sidewalk hold up to the elements. www.concretecontractorsinseattle.com
