Corserine and the Rhinns of Kells, Forrest Lodge

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

To the east of Merrick are vast areas of forestry plantations. The great Rhinns of Kells ridge, however, rises proudly above the treeline and offers an excellent rugged hillwalk. The high point is Corserine, a Corbett and an extensive viewpoint over much of Galloway.


Forest tracks lower down. Faint grassy paths on the hills, with some pathless or wet sections.
