The Striding Arches are a series of three massive stone sandstone arches built on the hilltops around Cairnhead, near Moniaive. Built by renowned sculptor Andy Goldsworthy, the arches are complemented by another springing from an old byre at the foot of the valley. This walk starts from the byre and climbs up through the forest to visit one of the hilltop arches; it is possible to extend the route to visit a second arch along the hill ridge.
