A very nice walk from town around the hill and back again. We took the advice from a review on here to go up via Moss Road as, coming back down along the very long very straight road is pleasant, going up, you would possibly lose the will to live. It was a splendid place to walk the dogs and... More

You can walk from the town or drive to a car park at the start of the circular walk to pulpit rock. We walked from town, and then returned via the path to Moss Road.

The walk from the centre of Tain to the car park is no great shakes. The first half is through housing estates and the second is on a single-track road where you have to step aside repeatedly to let cars past. The ensuing short circular walk to Pulpit Rock is pleasant, however, and is rewarded by lovely views taking in... More

Can park near the top or walk up from the town if you have more time and energy. I like to go up the path from the end of Moss Road and come back down the road. The road feels like a long and tedious slog if you take that route on the way up.
