Starting near Knockbrex, the route starts with a coastal stretch beside the rocky shore, sandy bays and little islands of the Fleet estuary, long-established as a favourite picnic and holiday spot.

 It then enters the lovely Cally Woods, with its spectacle of spring bluebells.  We will be accompanied by a local historian who will bring alive the story of the Cally Estate’s planned landscape.

This mainly flat route is largely on tracks and woodland paths. It finishes at a café in the attractive Biosphere Community of Gatehouse-of Fleet.
