1 Start out at the Heatherdene car park. Walk away from where you entered in the car, and pass on by the toilet block. There is a route marking map at this point too, where you can get your bearings. The walk we describe here follows the black marked route.
2 Continue on the main path here until you reach some steps which lead down to the road. Cross over the A6013 road to reach the dam.
3 After crossing the dam, follow the black route marker to head up to the site of a quarry.
4 The path will then descend to the edge of the reservoir, returning back to the dam, where you can then follow the route back to the car park.
