On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.

Ayrshire

This lovely, family friendly route is perfect for little legs! The short walk has plenty to offer as it passes along the shorefront of Fairlie, a small village with wonderful views to Largs and to the Cowal hills above Dunoon as well as the historical Fairlie Castle.

Perfect for little legs! This lovely, family friendly route starts at Fairlie Train Station at 1.00pm and passes along the shorefront of Fairlie, a small village with wonderful views to Largs and to the Cowal hills above Dunoon as well as the historical Fairlie Castle. The walk follows this stunning coast up to Largs Marina where there is a collection of ‘Anchors, Floats and Sinkers’ on loan from the Fairlie NATO base.

The walk ends with a pleasant beach walk passing The Pencil, which is a memorial to the Battle of Largs in 1263 which finally expelled the Vikings from western Scotland. From here its just a hop, skip and a jump from reaching the finish where you will be treated to a well earned post-walk reception so you can rest your feet and have a well deserved snack or drink - a great end to the day!
