Introduction to the Rhinns of Kells
The Rhinns of Kells is a ridge of hills which runs
north/south along the eastern border of the Galloway Forest Park. It is
some 17km long as the crow flies and offers several very impressive days'
walking from a variety of starting points. Routes which we have used are
shown on the "Map of the Rhinns"
page which will print onto an A4 sheet, not to be used as the map which
you will navigate by but as a handy reference to get the overall feel
of the place in your head.
