Road Directions

One of the wildest places in southwest Scotland, but still surprisingly accessible, Cairnsmore is a paradise for walkers. There are wide-ranging views and a patchwork of muted colours from the low-growing vegetation that ekes out its living here. Watch out for peregrine falcon, red and black grouse, red deer and feral goats.

Best Time To Visit: June to September.

Facilities: Small information centre, public toilets with disabled access, farm walk, parking and cycle rack at Dromore Farm. The small car park for the summit path is just off the A75.

Further Information: SNH, Cairnsmore of Fleet Reserve Office, Dromore Farm, Gatehouse of Fleet, Castle Douglas DG7 2BP. Tel: 01557 814435.
