Overview

 A long riverside walk along both sides of the River Annan.  The walk commences with a steep climb, through the woods, to the summit of Woodcockair. A descent of the other side of the hill through the woods finds a road leading to Brydekirk. Crossing the bridge we return along the path before crossing the Annan again. The walk skirts the golf course before crossing a footbridge for a loop up to Hoddom Mill. Returning over the footbridge we ascend to the castle (for a well-deserved ice cream) before heading to the car park.
