To prepare to ‘make a desperate dash to the summit’ (Titty – SD)
Actually more of a gentle ascent, taking the path – whatever Nancy would say!If you wish to remain below and wave to intrepid explorers, that’s good.
There is a very interesting Visitor Centre too and toilets. Follow the tracks of Five Red Herrings and the 1935 Hitchcock 39 Steps film.
From Creetown take the B796 for 7 miles turning left onto the minor road after Gatehouse Station to Visitor Centre. From Gatehouse of Fleet take the B796 after 6 miles turn right onto minor road to Visitor Centre and car park.
