Walk 3-1: Mochrum Fell and Barwhillanty

This route explores an area completely new for WalkFest and provides an exciting linear route encompassing a variety of different landscapes including open fields, lochside, standing and clear-felled forest and open moorland.


Barely rising more than 100m throughout the length of the walk, from the starting point at Balgerran near Crossmichael, the route heads roughly northwards across Mochrum Fell to finish at Gibbshill on the road east of Balmaclellan.

Sightings of red kites are guaranteed, and there are strong possibilities of seeing a variety of other wildlife including roe deer and red squirrels.
