From Clenry Bridge the route heads out onto the wild, remote moors of Wigtownshire. Looking back there are fine views over Luce Bay to the Mull of Galloway.
Following rough tracks to Cairnscarrow and the ancient chambered cairn of The Auld Wife’s Grave the walk continues through moorland often occupied by snipe and red grouse.
The sheltered valley of the Water of Luce is reached and turning upstream an unusual and challenging footbridge is crossed before following the burn back to New Luce.
