Back Bay - Monreith - Clachan of Myrton - Blairbuy - Back Bay

There is great variety on this pleasing walk embracing beach and cave, woodland, lochs, moorland, tracks and green lanes. The walk visits a seaside village, several farms, Maxwell's Otter and the ruinous Kirkmaiden Church. There are also two optional short detours to the Wren's Egg and Drumtrodden standing stones.

Please note that there are no refreshments available on this walk, but just up the road from Monreith at 375402 is the admirable Monreith Wildlife Park (01988-700217), which has a cafe offering drinks and snacks. A visit to see the animals after your walk is highly recommended.
