Walk 7-1: Lagg Valley Panorama

This route explores the National Scenic Area north of Gatehouse of Fleet with a landscape expert and finishes in the attractive former mill town.


The walk starts at Knocktinkle viewpoint and crosses fields and moorland to the foot of Bengray (366 metres).

It then follows the forest edge to the shores of Loch Whinyeon and passes the old and now defunct arrangements for the Gatehouse water supply.

Climbing over a series of low hills it crosses the Laurieston Road and up the Green Lumps to a view point looking down to the amazing sheen of bluebells in Castramont Wood.

The walk then heads on south through fields and along tracks to ford the Lagg burn and onward into Gatehouse of Fleet where refreshments await.
