Graddoch Burn
Graddoch Burn
The Graddoch Burn rises on the western face of Cairnsmore of Fleet and flows southwestwards to join the Palnure Burn close to that stream's confluence with the River Dee 3 miles southeast of Newton Stewart. Access to this grid square for a first geograph was achieved by climbing the west route through Bardrochwood Moor to the top of Cairnsmore of Fleet. The route I then took was via the cairn on the Knee of Cairnsmore and then downhill through NX5064 parallel with the stane wall and wood from which the burn emerges. No track or path on the way down to here and quite a steep drop. Centre of picture is a wide gulley through which the burn runs at this point, right is Bardrochwood Moor, and the water left is the top of Wigtown Bay. Ahead on the day I was there could be seen Luce Bay, the Mull of Galloway and the Mourne Mountains of Ireland.
