An attractive coastal route with plenty of wildlife and historic interest
This route, starting from the village of Dundrennan, with its attractive Abbey where Mary Queen of Scots spent her last night on Scots soil, charts a route east by remote bays and high cliffs through area well known for smuggling activities in the 18th and 19th centuries.
We will be accompanied by a coastal ranger, who will be able to point out the flora and fauna of this picturesque coastal area. Our finishing point is the wide expanse of the attractive Balcary Bay.
