Walk 2-7: A meander along the Waters of Trool, Minnoch and Black Burn

A leisurely afternoon walk along woodland paths in the heart of the Galloway Forest, with the sound of the burbling streams never far way.

Starting at Caldons, we follow the route of the Southern Upland Way westwards as it meanders alongside the Water of Trool until it reaches the Visitor Centre at Stroan Bridge. Here lunch can be taken on the picnic benches beside the tumbling waters outside, if it is fine, or alternatively inside the café.

After lunch a stroll through woodland reaches the pretty village of Glentrool where the route crosses the road onto a new path which the Villagers have designated a “kindness path”. Along the way many painted stones with erudite messages and illustrations have been placed. Hopefully, Sid and  Nancy will still be in residence. Snakes alive – what a treat!
