This is the probably the longest and one of the most exposed sections of the whole walk, much of it across open moorland. The rewards are fine views and the feeling of remoteness and solitude. Chalk Bothy at Polskeoch near the 28km point provides shelter for those with sleeping/cooking gear. Some minor roads where vehicle pick-ups could be arranged.
Footpaths, boggy in places, across open moorland hills dominate this section, which is the highest so far, though there is some walking on minor roads and forest and farm tracks.
St Johns Town of Dalry and Sanquhar are both served by bus; the latter also has a rail station.
