This route explores one of the often over looked man-made wonders of the Galloway landscape - drystane dykes.
This year’s festival celebrates these works of art in their many forms – from the purely practical to the more ornate. This walk takes a stroll through the beautiful Cally Woods accompanied by the Chairman of the South West Scotland Branch of the Dry Stone Walling Association who will explain the many forms and the unique styles of each locality.
As we wander through the woods you will be able to see magnificently restored dykes set within carpets of beautiful wild flowers.
We finish at the attractive village of Gatehouse of Fleet, where refreshments can be purchased.
