This easy route, using forest tracks, gives you the chance to feel as if you are in the Galloway Hills without the climbing.

Ascent
 

Starting from the New Galloway Road, this walk follows forestry tracks through farmland and felled forestry.

The fact that the trees have been cut opens up lovely views to the hills so there is the feeling of being in the hills, with the wild isolation, without the hard graft of climbing rough ground.

There should be red kites, buzzards and ravens as well as cuckoos, woodpeckers and smaller birds.

This is Galloway at its untamed rugged best.
