Walk 7-1: The Larg Hill

This route has three distinct sections for a great day out and offers wonderful views of the Cree Estuary and the Machars from its highest point.


Starting in the natural woodland of the RSPB’s Wood of Cree Reserve, the route climbs to Loch Middle and then up the steepish slope of Punch Well Brae to reach the high point of the day at the summit of Larg Hill (676 metres). An easy descent to the Nick of the Brushy and then on through cleared forest to a forest road which leads to the finish at Auchinleck.
