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

Girvan to Maidens

PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO SENSITIVE FARMLAND AND DIFFICULT ROCKY COASTLINE, THIS ROUTE IS NOT SUITABLE FOR GROUPS OVER 10 PEOPLE, DOGS AND RUNNERS. The route starts at Girvan Harbour car park. This is classed as a moderate/difficult walk with farm tracks, wrack roads and three short tidal stretches. Girvan Mains is a busy working farm. Please pass through the farm yard quickly and quietly, look out for working vehicles, and avoid any disturbance to animals. After the quarries at Chapeldonan, the foreshore below the cottages may be impassable at high tide – an alternate route along a field edge path is available. 24 metres high, with 76 steps to the top, the Turnberry Lighthouse has marked the coastline in these parts since 1873. Rising out of the mists to greet ships for over a hundred years, this quintessential icon is one of Turnberry's most powerful charms.
