|Route outline (key)|
The C15M starts on the B976 at Finzean Village and heads west, following the north bank of the Water of Feugh into the Forest of Birse. It comes to an end just before the head of the glen, where a scattering of buildings are labelled as Ballochan on the map. These include a church and Birse Castle, a magnificent, fantastical tower house rebuilt about a century ago. Back at the eastern end of the route, there are two spurs of the C15M, which meet at Drumhead and continue north to the B976 at Whitehill.
