Glenkiln walk, nr Shawhead

An enjoyable ramble amongst the attractive upland landscapes around the Glenkiln Reservoir. The route used to have an impressive selection of sculptures but following the theft of one, all but the Glenkiln Cross (off-route) have now been removed. We have kept the photos to show how it was but don't expect to see the sculptures.


Minor roads and grassy track, some muddy patches.

Public Transport



Parking area near head of Glenkiln reservoir. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
