Cicerone Walking in the Galloway Hills

Cicerone - Walking the Galloway Hills

The Galloway Hills of south-east Scotland offer almost unlimited access for walkers, a rare freedom that has contributed to their description as 'A Walker's Paradise'. A tract of rocky, heathery wilderness interspersed by forest park, these hills offer a varied walking programme, from gentle waymarked forest trails to strenuous, bothy-based treks. You can marvel at the wild qualities of the hills and follow the colourful and turbulent history of the Scottish clans and Robert the Bruce. The mixed woodland and moors support a varied wildlife, including many species of bird and wildfowl, red deer, wild goats, cattle, and even red squirrels and lizards.

Paddy Dillon describes in detail 33 circular day walks of 5-12 miles, all starting from a car park, and 7 longer, more adventurous walks. All the walks can be linked with one or two others. Whichever you choose, the Rhinns of Kells, Rig of the Jarkness, Nieve of the Spit, Shallock on Minnoch, Point of the Snibe, Mullwharcher and Craigeazle are names to stir your imagination and inspire you to poetry.

Seasons
All year round, although the hills are high and remote enough to need care in winter and bad weather.

Centres
Not a lot in the hills, but Newton Stewart lies to the south, Stranraer to the south-west and Girvan to the north-west. Road access on the A713 is arguably easiest from the east.

Difficulty
Full-day mountain and moorland walks in a little-inhabited part of south-west Scotland.

Must See
Wild, remote and quite high hills; Loch Trool; forests.
