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 the long-abandoned Kirkmabreck Church and exploring its isolated churchyard.

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.

Thanks to Jonathan Garner for updates and Google Street View for Creetown pictures. Any replacements and refreshed pictures gratefully received by Walkingworld.
