The Dumfriesshire Dales are a rural playground waiting to be explored, an accessible area of distinct variety: heather-clad hills, linns with tumbling waterfalls, babbling rivers and ever-shifting merse and firth. Despite their proximity to so many urban centres, these Dales were known more intimately by the discerning Victorians than they are by today’s better travelled walkers. Time, then, to rediscover the charms of this rural corner with this new full colour Pocket Mountains guide. Whether it’s a morning exploring Scotland’s highest village, an afternoon paddling the shores of the Solway, or an evening gazing at star-filled skies, Darren Flint and Donald Greig’s hand-picked selection of 40 walks reveals what it is that makes this under-discovered part of the Southern Uplands just so special.
