Walking the Galloway Hills

by Ronald Turnbull | 15 July 2019
PAPERBACK
This guide covers 34 day walks and one long-distance route in the wild and remote hills of Galloway. Although there are some shorter and easier routes, many of these hill walks are long and on rugged terrain, so are more suitable for experienced walkers. The walks cover the evocative areas of The Merrick, The Awful Hand, The Rhinns of Kells, the Minnigaff hills and Cairnsmore of Fleet, among others. The guide uses OS 1:50,000 maps with detailed route descriptions and photos accompanying each route. Key information such as distance, time, and ascent are given. A harshness grade gives an indication of how rough the ground is expected to be, and suggestions of variants, shortcuts and ways to extend each walk are also given. The Galloway Hills are small, but special. They stretch just 15 miles from west to east, and 25 miles north to south almost as small as Snowdonia. Within this largely pathless area there are 28 summits over 2000ft (600m) including four Corbetts. Plenty of background information is given on the region's fascinating and important history.
