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

Glenapp to Ballantrae

PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO SENSITIVE FARMLAND AND DIFFICULT ROCKY COASTLINE, THIS ROUTE IS NOT SUITABLE FOR GROUPS OVER 10 PEOPLE, DOGS AND RUNNERS. This is classed as a moderate/difficult walk, as it has ascends over rough estate roads, grassy cliff tops and through livestock farms. Starting point is a roadside cottage next to Glenapp Kirk. For 1.5km after Currarie Glen, there is a good cliff-top walk, with the possibility of seeing Ravens, Buzzards, Linnets and Whinchats. Downanhill and Langdale Farms use electric fences to manage their cattle – please take care not to touch the wires. Look left over the fence at Holm Park farm and entrance shaft and ventilators of an underground nuclear fallout observation post are visible. Passing the clachan of Garleffin, take care when crossing the busy A77, south of the new bridge over the River Stinchar. Before reaching the end point of Ballantrae, Ardstinchar Castle is a historical point of interest
