A level easy walk along Girvan seafront and then a climb up Byne Hill, and return. Meet at main car park past the harbour in Girvan (next to Louisa Drive for sat navs). I've requested sunshine for this event so hopefully it'll be an ice cream on the beach kind of day when we finish. Snack/drink for the break at the top of the hill while you enjoy the views. For those coming in by train, let me know and I will try and co-ordinate lifts from train station to the start. This walk involves a few stiles (3 I think) and a wooden 7 bar gate to climb.
Easy 5 miles (ish) with a nice coffee shop to finish.
Designated as an Ancient Monument, The Greenock Cut is an aqueduct built in the 1820s to supply water from Loch Thom to Greenock. The 7 mile route is full of interesting features. It is an easy walk along tarmac country roads, gravel tracks and grassy footpaths. Hopefully it will be clear day and you will be rewarded with fantastic views to Greenock, Gourock, the River Clyde and the southern Scottish mountains. Please be aware that hillwalking and mountaineering are activities with a danger of personal injury or death. Participants in these activities should be aware that they take part at their own risk and are responsible for their own actions and involvement.
