Dumfriesshire Dales 40 Favourite Walks

Dumfriesshire Dales 40 Favourite Walks

by: Darren Flint and Donald Greig
The Three Dumfriesshire dales of Nithsdale, Annandale and Eskdale are a rural playground of heather-clad hills, linns with tumbling waterfalls, babbling rivers and ever-shifting merse and firth. Despite being bisected by the main road into England, these dales were known more intimately by the Discerning Victorians than they are today. Time then, to rediscover the charms of this peaceful corner of Scotland.

Whether it's a morning exploring the country's highest village, an afternoon paddling the shores of the Solway or an evening gazing at star-filled skies, Darren Flint and Donald Greig's hand-picked selection of 40 walks reveals what it is that makes this unassuming part of the world so special. The walks are grouped into five sections which essentially follow the river catchment areas for each dale.

All of the walks are designed with some sort of focal point or purpose in mind: ancient ruins, wildlife, fine views or places with historical footprints. The walks in this handy pocket guide vary in length from 3.5 km to 16 km. Each walk entry begins with at-a-glance details of distance, time, terrain, parking and public transport access. Clear route finding instructions follow together with coloured overview sketch maps. The text also includes brief notes on features of interest along the way and lots of coloured illustrations.
