This event offers a unique opportunity to see the delights of some of 6500 acre site. You will make your way along the estate roads, through the rear gardens, across fields and through woodland, with opportunity to take in the views across the Deer Park as you go. The route is a mixture of tarred and gravel pathways with a significant section on grass. Much of the course is mixed undulations and uneven surfaces.
The meeting point is on the lawn area in front of the beautiful building of Hopetoun House.
