Direction: Out Terregles Rd, Return Old Military Road
Distance: 61 miles.
This route goes through the 3 towns of Castle Douglas, Kirkcudbright and Dalbeattie. There's a good climb 10 miles in over Glenkiln Hills on a mostly traffic free road. From Castle Douglas to Kirkcudbright the road is also pretty much traffic free. From Dalbeattie head out for The Haugh of Urr to return on the fantastic undulating 'Old Military Road'.
Update: 8 Sept 12 - Be very careful 11 to 12 miles in, on the backroad to KPD. There are some serious pot holes on the road and some appear around a corner so you don't see them until the last instant. Bunnyhop skills come in handy!
The traffic free road heading for 'Kirkpatrick Durham'.
