Pleasant walk which took us 3 hours today to do. No problems following instructions by author. The view of Drumlanrig Castle as you drive down the main drive to the car park is outstanding, lovely building. We paid £5.00 each for access to the grounds. The first stretch of the walk which runs alongside the riverside is beautiful. The views of the river are ever changing. The last half or mile or so of this stretch until you see the cottages at point 6 was very overgrown when we did it with lots of nettles and jaggy weeds creeping over the path. Despite the nice day, I was glad I had trousers on for this bit. All in all, a nice walk which leaves you feeling that you've actually seen most of this wonderful estate. Great circuit for the dogs, they were off lead the whole way bar when we crossed the field at point 16 as there were sheep in it.
