The Striding Arches

 
Home » Attraction » The Striding Arches
Striding Arch byDavid Baird

Details

The Striding Arches are a number of iconic red sandstone arches in an area of Dumfries & Galloway known as Cairnhead.

Nearest village is Moniaive from where the arches can be reached by driving about 7 miles along a narrow but highly scenic road.

All the arches are around 4 metres in height and are made from red Dumfries-shire sandstone. The Striding Arches have been created by local artist Andy Goldsworthy and has also created arches in New Zealand, Canada and the USA.

Many of the Striding Arches are on hill tops involving strenuous walks and some of the arches have no defined paths leading to them. full information can be obtained from the Striding Arches website.
