This route climbs the south of Scotland's highest hill, Merrick, but at a gentle pace and with plenty of help and support along with way.
The Merrick features in every Walkfest but has been part of a longer route. We have often been asked to include a walk to the top using the 'tourist' path and we are delighted to offer it this year.
The walk is aimed at anyone who would like to climb the Merrick but has not had the confidence to undertake it. The speed will be gentle and Galloway Mountain Rescue Team will provide leaders to ensure safety.
Once reaching the summit we return by the same route, but of course, with a different perspective and views.
