Walk 3-2: Curleywee: Galloway Grandeur

This route explores the northern Minnigaff Hills and includes two Donalds – Lamachan and Curleywee. Recent forest harvesting has significantly altered this area, opening up views not previously seen.


Starting from Caldons, we follow the cascading Caldons Burn onto Lamachan. (717 metres), Bennanbrack, the Nick of Curleywee before the short steep climb to the distinctively craggy Curleywee (674 metres). The descent is via White Hill, and the bluebell woodlands of Glenhead to finish at Bruce’s Stone.
