Pirn Wood and Leithen Water

Walking

A short circular starting on the old stone bridge, The Cuddy Brig, and passing under the beeches and oaks of Pirn Community Woodland before returning by the Leithen Water.

The Cuddy Brig was built from money saved by the community at a time when there was no minister. Look out for Jenny’s Well named after a lady who made sweets to sell to children.
