Enjoy some beautiful views across to the Galloway Hills and over the Cree Estuary on this lovely moorland walk out of Creetown. Skirting Larg Hill, you will experience the peaceful yet brooding solitude of the disused Fell Quarries, haunt of raven and peregrine falcon, before proceeding to long-abandoned Kirkmabreck Church and exploring its isolated churchyard.

There are three alternative return routes: via the farm and settlement at Kirkmabreck, followed by a stint along the cycle-path beside the A75 and the cut through Castle Cary (Cassencarie) Holiday Park; or to avoid the road route you may choose to return across the moors the way you came; or you may divert over the wall-stile through Cassencarie Wood.

Information for Dog Owners: this walk is not considered suitable for dogs. Besides sheep and cattle, sometimes with calves, there are deep, water-filled quarries and abandoned workings to be avoided.
