Moor of Drannandow

This cracking wee walk starts from the Wood of Cree road below Drannandow (pronounced 'Drannandoo') and rises gently onto open moorland, with lovely wide views to the hills. The route approaches Larg Hill (2,216ft or 675m) before dropping equally gently through forestry and emerging onto the open moor again. The entire circuit offers easy walking on good, firm tracks, with just one stile, although a couple of the half-dozen field-gates might be more easily climbed than opened. Drannandow Farm keeps the attractive, reddish Luing ('Ling') cattle, the most recently registered British breed; also curly-horned sheep. Near Nappers Cottage is a chambered cairn.

Please note that there are no refreshments available on this very rural walk.

Sadly not very dog friendly - the only off-lead sections are through the forestry areas. Lots of sheep around.
