Walk 6-1: Curleywee

This route explores Curleywee, one of the most distinctive peaks in the Galloway Hills.


Anyone coming to walk in Galloway must include Curleywee as it has a unique position to appreciate the neighbouring ranges as well as those further afield.

The route starts at Auchenleck and takes in several “wee” ascents starting with Black Benwee hill, then onto Bennan Hill before a steep climb to Curleywee (674 metres), an ideal point for a coffee and photo opportunity. A descent off White Hill onto the Southern Upland Way around the edge of Loch Dee leads to the finish at Craigencallie.
