Public Transport to Stone Farm—walking from Kings

Does anyone know if there's a direct path from Kingscote Station to Stone Farm? Google walking directions gives a circuitous 2.7 miles, but it looks to me on satellite view as if there might be a more direct route of about a mile. I'm trying to work out if we can take our daughter there. I wouldn't want to drag her the long way round, but a mile would be all right.  Stone Farm

Here's Google's route: https://maps.app.goo.gl/XtrXvj9kwjdLL5Qs6

There's a bridleway but not direct. Probs about 1.5 miles. Obvious on an OS map.

The OS map suggests you should be able to do it by heading west from the station onto a bridleway heading south, then linking that with another bridleway heading east at Mill Place. Looks to be a smidge over 1.5 miles.

Oh yes, I can see it now. Thanks for your replies, both of you. That route's probably slightly shorter than the one I had imagined too.

Look at streetmap.co.uk, it has OS maps and is much better than Google for this sort of thing.  It shows footpath with much shorter route, South parallel to railway then East to Stone Farm. 

Enjoy

Walking that road would not be a pleasant experience. Although only a minor road it is a rat run, narrow and carries quite a lot of traffic.

Was thinking the same thing. Not a road to be carrying a bouldering pad on your back lol

I tend to use the Ordnance Survey overlay in Bing Maps for this sort of thing. Like streetmap.co.uk but an easier interface I find. The only issue is that you can't access the OS overlay on a mobile.
