This is a fantastic choice and you can get to it directly from Cutlar’s Cottage. All you have to do is pass our neighbours farm and a tiny cemetery, and you’ll happen across Dundrennan Abbey (the place where Mary Queen of Scots spent her last night in Scotland). You can then loop back to Orroland gates or continue to the village.
As you leave Orroland, wave goodbye to the eagles on the gatepost and turn right. This is a beautiful short walk where you can clear your head and enjoy the views over the countryside. You’ll come across a junction that will take you to the ‘Stockmoss Smithy’ and you can loop back round to Orroland.
