Walk 3-7: Water of Trool

This delightful walk uses the Waters of Minnoch and Trool as the focal point, meaning you are never far away from an attractive Galloway burn.


The route starts on the Wood of Cree Road at Brigton and follows the east side of the Water of Minnoch to the picturesque Romany Bridge before heading on to the Holm Bridge.

It continues on the Southern Upland Way along the banks of the Minnoch and Water of Trool to the Covenanters' Grave at Caldons.

A waymarked path then leads through the forests to the Stroan Bridge Visitor Centre where refreshments can be taken.

Note: This walk will return to Newton Stewart 1 hour later than advertised in the brochure at around 5pm.
