Bennachie loop is graded red in Wild Trails Scotland. The descent from Oxen Craig looked way darker than that, but hey, who cares, it is a lovely place to take a fall (or four). On a serious note, that descent is a rock staircase until the tree line, so if I were to do it again, I’d take the route towards Rowan Tree car park. I thoroughly enjoyed the loop, there is a good route description in the book, and maps and gpx on MTBinfo website.
