Newton Stewart is the main Market Town of the area with a variety of shops and businesses. The main street has a few interesting buildings including the Town Hall with its Clock Tower and white painted brickwork.
It’s time for me to leave this pretty little town but I’m afraid my route takes me along the main road for a few miles. Just after Nether Barr I turn off the main road and follow the signs for Carty Port and Moss of Cree. I eventually enter the old county town of Wigtown.
