This low-level walk features the varied landscape around the pretty village of Kirkcowan
Starting at Shenanton, the route follows the Old Military Road across moors and fields to Halfway House where it crosses into the pleasant wooded policies of Craiglaw House. Leaving the estate, fields are crossed to the River Tarff at Barnearnie.
Then a newly refurbished riverside path passes old woollen mills marked by their tall chimneys.
An attractive walk through the woods recrosses the Tarff before following a new path through the fields to the Village.
Note that the route can be fairly damp in places.
