We have no recent survey of this route, but being a lade it should have very easy gradients. A path is mapped alongside at least part of its length through Old Wick. Any modern surveys would be appreciated.

This path follows a lade where water was siphoned out of Loch Hempriggs along this man-made channel to power the factories in Wick before flowing out into Wick Bay.
