The walk starts at Anwoth church yard to view the Covenanters’ graves and hear about their lives, before visiting the Rutherford memorial at the top of the hill. There are fine views from here over the Fleet estuary before descending through the attractive Cally woods past the Temple, a two storey stone tower, which has a history of its own.

Next the route meanders out into the countryside to Girthon Church and monuments to more martyrs executed by the notorious Grierson of Lagg.

Crossing fields the route emerges at the Cream O’Galloway visitor centre where a variety of refreshments will be available.
