The Corbenic Poetry Path meanders through a variety of terrains including open hillside, moorland, ancient native woodlands, hazel coppice, and riverbanks. The path has been designed with a variety of surfaces to be as sensitive as possible to the wild terrain it passes through. It curves and contours, rises and falls with the shape of the land offering a means of accessing quiet corners and magical places in Corbenic that would otherwise remain hidden away and forgotten. The path has been made possible by, and is used regularly by those who live in or attend the Corbenic Community.

The Corbenic Poetry Path is a showcase of the work of some of the very best and most active poets currently living and writing in Scotland, particularly those living close enough to Corbenic to visit and get a feel for the place, and to return for live poetry events to be held in specially created performance areas along the path.

The development of the poetry path has been led primarily by the Estate workshop team, but many of the workshops have been, and continue to be involved in the construction, installation and maintenance of the path, the poetry and the sculptures.
