Route Description
Farmland and open moorland. Start at the New Luce information shelter and take the Glenluce road south for 1.5 miles until Cruise Farm. At that point, join the Southern Upland Way and proceed along it as far as just before Dranigower Bridge, turning left along the public road to return to New Luce. This walk is notable for the Caves of Kilhern and Burnt Mound Ancient Monuments and the Ancient Farmstead.
