Walk 7-3: The changing face of the Galloway Uplands

The route explores the rapidly changing landscape of the Galloway Hills and the environment of a typical upland farm, its habitats and livestock, its business challenges and opportunities.


Accompanied by the local farmer it will be taken at a leisurely pace and offers both spectacular views over Wigtown Bay and hopefully food for thought and discussion.

The route starts close to the top of the Cambret Hill, utilising a new forest road which skirts the hill before descending across moorlands and fields to sea level at Carsluith village.  It includes short ascents but is mainly downhill. It ends at Carsluith Village Hall with time for refreshments.

Note: This walk will return to Newton Stewart half an hour later than originally advertised, at around 15:30. The start time is unchanged.
