This walk incorporates two beautiful Estates. We will start the walk from Dumfries Estate walking on paths to Ochiltree via the Lugar Water, from there we walk up to Auckinleck Estate where we will have lunch. There is an option to buy lunch at Boswell Coffee Shop on the Estate.
After lunch we continue our walk to Catrine where we will get the local bus back to Auckinleck and finally walk around to Dumfries Estate to pick up our cars.
If you have a bus pass please bring with you, otherwise bus fare is £2.60
The walk is undulating and could be muddy in places.
There are toilet facilities on both Estates.The path to Ochiltree is old and slippery in places. Therefore, would suggest bringing poles.

The booking form can be found
The 'tickets' will be available between Monday 8am and Friday 8pm prior to the Saturday's walk. We will be increasing the number of places available so realistically you should now be almost certain to obtain a place on the walk. There are now no longer any formal restrictions on car-sharing, however, you should feel comfortable with the people you are travelling with (if any). If you are unable to take part in the walk, after booking, please use your Eventbrite form to cancel. Thank you. Enjoy the walk.
