A Walk Round the Buckland

This walk is extremely popular with residents of Kirkcudbright and is about 4.5 miles long. All on the public roads, the busier stretches of which have pavements, much of it is easy, level walking with one steep hill to negotiate. From the town centre take the A711 south of the town past Manxman’s Lake until you reach Mutehill. Follow the main road a few hundred yards past the garden centre then take the minor road to the left and follow the course of the Buckland Burn. When you reach the bridge, turn left again and climb the hill from which you will have spectacular views over the hills to the west, before walking downhill again and back into town. A lovely walk with mixed coastal, woodland and pastoral sections.
