Walk on The Rhinns of Kells

The Rhinns of Kells are a range of hills in the Galloway Hills, part of the Southern Uplands of Scotland. The most easterly of three parallel ridges, they are neighboured to the west by the Range of the Awful Hand (including Merrick) and the Dungeon Hills.

We have been living in Newton Stewart for almost 3 years and this is the first time we’ve stretched over to the east to the Rhinns. Here’s our summit photo and route 🙂 It’s a long old walk, with a bit of navigation to get through the forest roads before hitting the flanks of the hills. The summit photo was on Corserine, a Corbbet at 814m and then we walked the ridge to Meikle Millyea, a Donald at 746m.

As we’ve not had a long mountain walk for a few months, we were surprised at being able to walk the following day !!
