About the walk:

This is another variation of a longer section of the Cateran Trail.  We start at Blackcriag Castle and cross its almost unique Bridge House, which took 40 years to build in the late 19th century.  We head north along the Trail and its drove road onto a short section of moorland near Pitcarmick before rejoining what is now a landrover track into Kirkmichael.


Near Woodhill, and no we don't expect the weather to be like this! At the bridge over Pitcarmick Burn
