Brighouse Bay to Kirkcudbright – 6.5 - 10 miles.

Brighouse Bay is a beauty spot near Kirkcudbright and is featured by E. A. Hornell and other Kirkcudbright artists in the early 1800’s. We are transported to the Balcary Bay start point and follow the rugged coastline to arrive at views of Ross island with lighthouse. We can detour to get closer views of the island where a murder took place in the early 1960s. Continuing on, you arrive at and walk round Ross Bay before joining another coast but different woofdland walk beside Kirkcudbright Bay visiting an old churchyard along the way. On arriving at the end at a popular bay, we are picked up and taken into Kirkcudbright for a look around and refreshment. Alternatively, if all agree we can walk by road by the side of the River Dee estuary into Kirkcudbright.

Tynron Doon – 6.5 miles

Tynron Doon – 6.5 miles

This is an interesting hill and glen walk starting in the pretty village of Tynron in north Dumfriesshire. The walk begins by ascending through a wood and uphill in open countryside to have panoramic views all around at Auchengibbert Hill (372) with trig point. We then head across a widge ridge to Tynron Doon, a prominent steep sided former iron age hill fort, again with great views over the Nith Valley and beyond. The Doon really is a striking layered land form.We return to Tynron by the countryside and a track. The churchyard has some of the oldest headstones we've seen, so wotha looka round, as is the nearby bridge and war memorial .After the walk we head for nearby Moniaive, 'one of the coolest villages in Britain' The Times, - for a look around and some refreshment.
