This route follows one of the most remote sections of the old railway line to Stranraer.
Starting at Mossdale the line is followed through open countryside past Loch Stroan and Loch Skerrow. We then turn south at the old viaduct and follow a forestry track with lovely views opened up by recent tree felling.
This is another high track so there are vistas over the Gatehouse valley and the Solway to the Stewartry, the Machars, Mull of Galloway and the Isle of Man. The views are spectacular but the walking is easy, finishing at Laghead Bridge.
