Ascent
 

Starting in Monreith Village overlooking Luce Bay, the route heads inland, following the Monreith burn as it makes its way down from the Monreith Estate.

The route wanders through woods and fields past the unusual Monkey Puzzle plantation. In May, Skunk cabbage flowers are spectacular in the boggy patches beside the path. Passing the Georgian house belonging to the Maxwell family the path skirts the edge of the White Loch, through woods carpeted with wild flowers to cross the main road into the remnants of the designed landscape gardens which once surrounded the estate.

Dropping down past Christmas tree plantations and across a shallow valley the path descends to the fishing village of Port William and the Clansman restaurant for supper (paid separately).
