    make a left turn and start to climb the hill to a cattle grid Take the path on the left here to go to Trusty s Hill for splendid views of Fleet Bay and and to see the Pictish carved stones known locally as the De il s Specs which can be found on the south side of Trusty s Hill Continue following the path until you come to a signpost pointing left for Rutherford s Monument for another diversion to a trig point where there are more fine views and to the monument Back on the main route follow the waymarkers through the wood to the ruined Old Kirk at Anwoth The route then follows a gated track it was recently reported that there are three gates on this section one chained shut so it is not currently recommended for cyclists and then the Corse of Slakes Road to Creetown OS Landranger 83 Newton Stewart Kirkcudbright area Heritage Information This path is part of a fairly unique military road in Scotland It is quite unusual in that it wasn t built to counteract the Jacobite threat but rather was built to facilitate troops to Ireland There was already a road leading this way but the military under Major Caulfield thoroughly reconstructed and realigned the road in the 1760s This Military Road from Bridge of Sark to Portpatrick largely lies under the A75 but other remnant sections can be found near G lenluce and N ewton Stewart Detailed below are a number of historic sites that point to the pre military age of the route Trusty s Hill is one of only two known sites in Galloway where the Picts have left clearly recognisable marks and it can only be a matter of speculation as to why these carvings have

    ride which preserves very well the line of the traditional route and the western half on the westward slope down to Merklands is open moor on which the path line has faded almost completely Craigton NO133577 on the A93 Blairgowrie Braemar road sits on a right angled bend where there is open ungated access into a farm yard From the yard one has only to glance to the left west to see the onward route namely a tractor track leading towards the edge of the forest and a kissing gate about 150m away In the forest the route zig zags gently upwards on a path of pine larch needles and emerges shortly into a broad 30m open heathery forest ride with the line of the route clearly apparent as a grass grown shelf along the southern side of the ride This leads nearly all the way to Loch Mharaich merging with the forest road which comes up from near Blackwater Hall some 300m before the loch The road forks twice in this 300m the route to the loch follows first the left then the right fork and terminates on a pleasant grassy flat overlooking the loch Minor woodland paths can be followed around half the circumference of the loch and then on uphill and westwards to a gate at the forest edge on the watershed From the forest edge the route onwards is hard to find because the path has faded We have been told there is a drystane dyke that runs across the moor to the corner of a wood at NO108567 which although is no path the going is much easier Any further advice on the best route to take from the forestry down to Balmyle on the A93 will be gratefully received OS Landranger 53 Blairgowrie surrounding
