Naked Walks in Galloway

Walk 4 - Laggan Camp

This walk is as long as you want it to be as there are also other places to visit in the area. The start is the same as for Walk 1 Start 1 Cross the road from the B&B and walk through the farm. Heading up the hill you join a track. It is usually at this point you can get undressed. Turning left up the track you reach the highest point about 120m above sea level with views of the Galloway hills on the left and Luce Bay and the Rhins behind you. From here you descend passing Cown Cottage. About 300m on the right after the Cottage is a gate. Here in the field there is a very distinct tractor track going up the rise in the distance. If you keep a look out on your right you will see one end wall of Slate Haugh - a farmstead from 18c long abandoned. Continue follow the track across the fields through two more gates. The track may be come a little indistinct but you should see it and / or cow tracks heading west towards the sea. There are no major land marks to show the route. You will eventually reach the edge of quite a steep drop where the path is again very distinct. Ahead of you on the top of a small hill is Laggan Camp with its tiered earthworks. The path leads around the left side of the hill. If you don’t want to retrace your steps home from the Camp you can get onto the beach and either pick up the path from the beach through Carlton Farm - See Walk 2 or head towards Port of Counan - See Walk 1.
