Walk 6-3: Supper walk: Cairnsmore Viaduct to Castle Cary

This is the more challenging of the two supper walk routes, combining a great walk with an evening meal at the Lairds Inn, Creetown (supper not included in price). This route offers fine views over the Cree Estuary and a good leg stretch to work up an appetite.


Starting at the Gaddoch Burn, which tumbles down from Cairsmore of Fleet, we gain height through fields beyond Blair’s Hill where the views open out.

The path then descends to the valley and joins the old tank road before cutting over more fields and the Paddy Line to reach the valley road and crosses Ma’s Bridge.

We then follow the Moneypool Burn down to the village of Creetown. Passing through the ‘ferry town’ and Castle Cary woods we soon arrive at the Laird’s Inn for a well earned supper.

We’ll advise you of the menu choices closer to the time, but here is the type of menu which the venue offers.

After our meal, our bus will then transport us back to Newton Stewart after the meal, arriving back around 8pm.
