The picturesque and rather remote village of Moniaive, in the parish of Glencairn, nestles amongst the green, rolling hills of Nithsdale. Moniaive's name derives from the Gaelic for 'hill of streams', being situated where three glens meet. This walk starts and ends in Moniaive and explores the surrounding countryside.

The artist James Paterson was the most celebrated of the 19th Century school of painters known as the 'Glasgow Boys' and resided in the village between 1879 and 1906. Nowadays Moniaive is home to a thriving community of artists and craftsmen and hosts an annual folk festival.
