**SORRY THIS WALK IS NOT FULLY BOOKED ** This route offers a gentle walk through the moors and woods west of Newton Stewart, from the River Bladnoch to the River Cree, finishing in the centre of Newton Stewart.
The walk starts at the old Bladnoch Bridge, meanders through Shennanton estate and Penninghame forest where views of the Minnigaff hills and local wildlife can be seen.
The route then goes through the farmlands of Skaith and Barnkirk to enter the town via Blairmount Park and Doonhill woods.
Note: This walk start time has moved slightly earlier to depart at 10am, with registration from 9.30am. Also, distance is 8 miles (13km), not 6 miles (10km) as previosuly advertised.
