New Galloway, Crossmichael and Dundeugh
Come and enjoy one or more of three walks in the Glenkens as part of the Day of the Region project!
WALK ONE - NEW GALLOWAY
The first walk is planned for 2pm on Sunday 11th September. It will be led by Gerry Cinderby, starting from the main car park in New Galloway. This walk goes over open land and across the flood plain to the river. The walk is flat but footing is uneven so walking shoes or boots are recommended. It is around 3 miles long.
WALK TWO - CROSSMICHAEL
The next walk is on Sunday 25th September, led by Janette Dickson, leaving from the Thistle Inn at 11am. You can park in front of the Thistle Inn or else in one of the side streets nearby. On you return, Jim Clelland will welcome you and your dog at the Thistle Inn for a bowl of homemade soup or something more substantial! This walk, of around 2 miles, is along quiet country lanes and gives superb views over Loch Ken.
WALK THREE - DUNDEUGH
Our third walk is on Sunday October 2nd - The Day of the Region - and is a real cracker! It follows a pet blessing service to be held in the grounds of the parish church in Dalry so will start around 2:45pm. Vorna Gilkes will lead us in exploring Dundeugh Island, north of Dalry. This is a beautiful forested area set in Loch Ken. The walk (around 4 miles) uses good forest tracks, although they can be muddy so stout footwear is recommended. Parking is very limited so it best to use the car park about 100m south and opposite at Polmaddy (Forestry Commission) which is well signed just off the A713.
