Ruined castle, woodland, river for dog-swimming - this walk has it all. Absolutely brilliant place to stop for a dog walk. You'll pass shops for picnic provisions on the way to the castle.

Brilliant circular walk

A brilliant circular walk around Castle Loch on the edge of Lochmaben. You can park at the castle ruins or in the bowling club car park. An easy to follow, well sign-posted walk around the Loch. There are a few sections of the walk where you will need to put your dog on the lead (one quiet road section and one short section on the pavement, next to a busy road) but the dogs can enjoy an off-lead run for the majority of the walk. Great for birdwatchers too and a magical little woodland section that the children will love!
