This route explores the highest of the Galloway Cairnsmores, and a Corbett to boot, Cairnsmore of Carsphairn.
Our chosen route takes the less familiar path from Knockgray to the summit via the Black Shoulder.
We descend to the Nick of the Lochans before a visit to the remote ‘Blue Peter’ Spitfire crash site. The intriguing history attached to this site will be narrated by the walk leader.
Thereafter, a track twists down towards Moorbrock and our pick-up at Craigengillan.
