Our Calorie Calculator estimates how many Calories you will burn using Metabolic Equivalent (MET) values from Compendium of Physical Activities. The Compendium idenitifes the relative energy cost of undertaking various activities compared with doing nothing. We then combine this with your weight and the estimated duration of the activity, taking into account the length of the route and the hills involved, to estimate the total Calories burned.
When selecting an Activity setting, select the speed you would normally travel at on flat ground.
Please remember, the estimated number of Calories is just a guide and the actual number of Calories burned may vary depending on other factors such as weather and terrain.

starting from car park opposite Gargunnock Inn walk up hill and turn left. Walk along Beech path taking care of tree roots. Not the best for Nordic walking but gets better after this part of walk. Small country lane so beware of occasional car. Turn right at next main turning. There can be big puddles here. At farm junction turn left for as long as you want allowing time for return route . This route back is going straight ahead and via Watson House Gardens. Turn right and end up back at Beech path. Return back to car park
