The route is classed as moderate/difficult, with sandy and rocky outcrops, a 100m ascent, livestock and a rocky shoreline. The route starts at the Varyag Memorial in Lendalfoot. A few hundred metres north of Lendalfoot there is a shipwreck memorial, for a crew who died in 1711.Please be considerate when passing Ardwell farm. This is a working livestock farm and the animals should not be disturbed. Magnificant views of Ailsa Craig from old 18th Century coach road high about Kennedy’s pass, on Ardwell farm land. Do not disturb livestock, but always report to farmer if you find animals in trouble. When descending the steep road after Kilranny Cottage, please be aware that there may be bulls grazing on the open fields at Ardwell farm. Please take care- if in doubt stick close to the roadside fence. The route ends at Girvan Harbour.
