About the walk:


Parts of this walk have been done before, but this time we are starting in Glen Prosen/Glen Uig to the north.  We climb Cat Law (671m, another Graham).  Expansive views of Angus can be had from here.  We descend Hill of Stanks and pass under Craig of Balloch before making our way towards Backwater Reservoir which now supplies much of Angus and Dundee with water.  Hen Harriers and Peregrines have been seen here.  Transport will take us to Peel Farm for refreshments.
