Walk 3-2: The Heart of the Minnigaff Hills

This route offers a mix of lovely oak woodland paths and wide open vistas.


From the Wood of Cree RSPB car park the woodland paths are followed, experiencing the differing senses this oak forest offers in springtime.

The route continues through spruce forest past Loch Middle emerging on the slopes leading to Larg Hill. The views westerly are quite unique from this location.

Lamachan, at 717 metres, is the highest point in the Minnigaff Hills and is the next top.

The descent follows the steep sided Caldons Burn to the pick up at the former campsite at Caldons.
