The Cloich Loop

About This Route

A relatively easy 8 mile circular due to the terrain consisting mainly of forestry tracks, farm tracks and country roads; great views out to the Moorfoot Hills. The route passes the old shepher’s cottage at Courhope and follows in part the old road to the Meldons. Barony Castle is now a hotel that offers bar meals and snacks.
