This walk offers a bit of everything – a section on tarred road, farm tracks, a short steepish cross-country section, historic interest and spectacular views throughout
Starting at Laggan road-end we follow the ‘High Road’ overlooking the Fleet estuary, past Barholm Castle to Kirkdale Bridge. We then follow a pleasant farm track through mixed woodland past Kirkdale Kirkyard before heading uphill across the heather-covered Kirkdale Hill. From there and throughout the last section along the farm tracks of Daffin and Bagbie Farms there are spectacular views in all directions - of Cairnsmore of Fleet , the Minnigaff Hills and Wigtown Bay. The walk ends with refreshments at Carsluith Village Hall.
