Save Our Footpaths - time for the serious walker to get off the beaten track. This circular walk features an ancient, enclosed footpath known as the 'Doggartland' which climbs up out of the Rye Water valley and along the top of the hill overlooking Dalry. The return is along a delightful and very quiet country lane. (Photo on the right). It's best walked in summer as the section of path towards the top of the hill will be very boggy in winter or after heavy rain, which is probably why the path seems rather unused.

The walk is suitable for teenagers, senior citizens and anyone in-between. OK for dogs, but hopeless for wheelchairs and buggies. Suitable footwear in summers will be anything stout and flat soled but boots will be best in winter; and there should be no problems for anyone wearing shorts. There are refreshments, pubs, eating places, toilets and many shops in Dalry, but no picnic tables or bench seats on this route.
