This is a delightful low level walk which follows the Southern Upland Way from Bargrennan to Stroan Bridge, via a rather distinctive bridge. There should be bird song to enjoy along the entire route and with the Waters of Minnoch never far away.
The route follows a well defined path, making it suitable for the vast majority of walkers and in early May bluebells should be at their best, set against a display of vivid spring green leaves from the mixed woodlands.
Along with route we will discover the quaint Romany Bridge which locals believe goes back to Roman times but it is more likely a 17th century pack horse bridge without parapets. Regardless of its history it provides an excellent photographic opportunity not to be missed.
The route follows the Southern Upland Way to finish at the Galloway Forest Park Visitor Centre at Stroan Bridge where refreshments are available.
It is the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
