Old Military Road at Ardachie
Old Military Road at Ardachie
The Old Military Road was built possibly in the 16th century to link Dumfries with Portpatrick. In addition to its military function, it was much used by drovers en route to and from Ireland. The Old Military Road is indicated clearly on the Landranger maps, but over much of the way the road is now scarcely traceable, although at this point it is being used as a farm road.
