Walk 5-2: Skyreburn: Round the Head of the Glen

** SORRY - THIS WALK IS FULLY BOOKED. CONTACT US TO BE ADDED TO THE RESERVE LIST ** This walk largely follows the watershed of the Skyreburn and provides some great views from an area off the beaten track


The route starts at the summit of the Corse of Slakes road and follows the ridge around Pibble hill, Meikle Bennan, Stey Fell and Kenlum Hill, providing excellent views into the Cairnsmore of Fleet massif and the Fleet Valley and also views southwards over Fleet Bay to the Solway and on a clear day, The Isle of Man.

There are sections which are rough underfoot.  

Overhead Red Kites are often seen and red deer are quite common. The route then drops down past Kingslaggan to the A75 at the Teapot café.
