View 56 Miles Parton in a larger map



Direction: Out old A75, Return Old Military Rd.

Distance: 56 miles.

Head out the old 'A75' road, and over the Old Military Road to castle douglas. From Castle Douglas head out to Parton on the Abercromby road. This is a busy road, be wary of the lunatic drivers, for some strange reason the local drivers don't like giving you much room. Once you hit Parton, take a right heading for the hills. The majority of the way home is traffic free, there may be the odd tractor or Post Office van but other than that it's very quiet. Overall an excellent route, the only downfall being the busy road from CD to Parton.

Rating 9/10
