Loch Trool is one of the real gems of the Galloway Forest park, a beautiful and tranqul body of water that was once the scene of a fierce battle. This enjoyable walk makes a complete circuit around the loch.

Terrain - Waymarked paths, tracks and minor road. The path on the south side of Loch Trool is muddy in places and has a fair amount of climbs and descents.
