About Chinese Ponds
Parts of the trail follow sections of the original estate paths, which date back to Victorian times. The path takes you on a gentle stroll through young native woodland, past the Ivy Bridge and the picturesque Ornamental Ponds - an ideal spot for a picnic.
From the upper section of the trail, enjoy the views of the Cumbraes and the Firth of Clyde.
