Walk 1-3: The Papa Ha Trail

There are many small paths through the forest around Kirroughtree and this easy afternoon walk explores some of them.


Starting at the New Galloway Road, the route turns onto the old Papa Ha path through coniferous woodland and then a rejuvenated path to Bruntis Loch. Felled woodland has opened up lovely views across to Creetown and Wigtown Bay.
Recently the ground around the Bruntis Lochs has been relandscaped with better bridges for cyclists and new sculptures.
We then join the lade path through mature deciduous woodland and it is interesting to compare the different habitats. We finish at Kirroughtree Visitor Centre for refreshments.
