A coastal route with views over to the Mountains of Mourne in Northern Ireland
This is a new route for Walkfest overlooking the North Channel on the western side of the Rhins of Galloway and hopefully the weather will be kind to enable views to the Mountains of Mourne and the Antrim coast to be fully appreciated.
This section of coast has considerable historical interest including smuggling.
The walk starts at Ardwell Bay and goes northerly passing various Bays and beaches along with a rugged coastline which will involve detours. The prestigious Knockinaam Hotel is passed but I suspect we will not be stopping for Lunch.
The path from Morroch Bay leads to Dunskey Castle along the top of the cliffs to Portpatrick where there is a wide choice of cafes and hotels for refreshments.
