Walk 5-3: A Tale of Two Rivers

** SORRY - THIS WALK IS FULLY BOOKED ** This route explores the watery, forested and remote areas around the border between Dumfries and Galloway and South Ayrshire.


Starting from the remote Knowe Village, the route heads northwards through the forest to Loch Maberry, source of the River Bladnoch, with its Pictish castle.

The route then heads for the three counties pool on the River Cree where the old counties of Ayrshire, Wigtownshire and the Stewartry of Kirkcudbright met.

We then follows the river, with its picturesque tumbling waterfalls, down to finish at Bargrennan, and a welcome refreshment at the House O’ Hill Inn.
