Walk 2-4: Rhins coastal path: part 1

This is the first of two routes exploring what will become the northern most section of the Rhins Coastal Path. It explores the rugged north west coast of the Rhins finishing at the iconic Corsewell Lighthouse


Starting at Cairnbrock, north west of Leswalt, we follow a track down to the coast, and the site of the ancient fort near Portobello.

From here we head due north hugging the coast for the rest of the walk, giving us great views across the North Channel throughout.

The route uses a mix of paths, tracks, open fields and moorland to discover this wild and remote section of coast.

Our northern most point is at Corsewall  Point, and its well known lighthouse.

We then head inland a short distance to our pick up near Barnhills.

There are a few steep sections, both up and down along this route, as we move between the coastal plain and the cliffs above, and there are also a handful of fences and walls to negotiate, but generally the walking underfoot is not too challenging.
