Walk 5-2: Linn's Tomb

This route follows the Southern Upland Way, taking in a few detours to visit points of interest.


This is an opportunity to complete a section of the Southern Upland Way crossing the moors of Wigtownshire with a wealth of historical interest along its route, not to mention the odd windfarm or two.

The route follows the Southern Upland Way with the occasional detour to take in specific points of interest and starts at Polbae. Linn's Tomb is worth visiting and the associated story will give an emotional start to the day. Craig Airie Fell gives a good view of the surrounding countryside and the Wells of the Rees and Laggangarn follow quickly. A further couple of kilometres sees the forest being left behind to be replaced with open moorland, Hut Circles and windmills. The finish is another 6 kilometres in the small village of New Luce.
