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

Portencross to Largs

The route itself is categorised as easy, with farm tracks, pavements, paths and cycle tracks. The route starts at Portencross Castle, which in itself is a historical point of interest. At Ardneil Hill, there is an impressive group of sandstone cliffs, the central rock buttresses being The Three Sisters and most northerly bluff called The Hawking Craig. Just after the Hawking Craig, Hunterson A Nuclear Power Station is visible. This route 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.Nearing the end of the walk, at Largs Marina, 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 (a memorial to the Battle of Largs), reaching the finish line of the public car park at Largs Marina
