Sorry if this has been asked a million times before but does anyone have a basic route description to get to the Ballroom in Smallcleugh. I done a lot of searching but not turned up anything. We are planning a trip there in early December and some pointers would be most helpful, thanks. IP: 82.69.77.77

There ought to be at least a couple good plans in the Smallcleugh folder, all which make the route look far simpler than it may possibly seem. Couldn't begin to give a step-by-step description that didn't confuse.

Tales of Masonic dinners aside, the flats you'pass en route are arguably more interesting to explore than the Ballroom itself so there's no great loss in not finding it first time.
