Knockman Wood, Newton Stewart

The start may be in an unpromising commercial plantation, but this circuit through Knockman Wood turns oat to be a delight, with semi-natural oakwoods interspersed with more open ground. The route visits a neolithic chambered cairn as well as the outlines of archaeological remains from medieval times.
