Waterfall walk or run: Edenmill to Auchineden Spout circuit

Written by Fiona

February 08 2021

This is a great walking or running route from Edenmill Farm Shop to Auchineden Spout and the via the shore of Kilmannan Reservoir to Burncrooks Reservoir and back down to Edenmill. You could do a shorter out-and-back walk from Edenmill to the waterfall.

Start/finish: Edenmil Farm Shop car park.

Distance: 7.5km

Elevation gain: 180m

See route on OS Map.

The route is on good quality trails and gives a nice challenge because the start is mostly uphill and then the last section is a wonderful downhill.

If you simply want to visit the Auchineden Spout (waterfall) just do a return route from the car park.

The waterfall is at the end of the short detour to the south on the circuit.

Other ideas to extend the route include a circuit of Jaw Reservoir to the south and a trip up to the Whangie to the north.
