BEWARE at the end of the walk, when you cross the A817 Haul Road, there is a new MOD firing rage. They fly red flags when in use. You then have to walk down the A817 to the roundabout. There is NO path and most of the traffic on this road travels fast... Please be careful. The MOD publish the days/times when the range is in use. However the December dates were not posted when we did our walk 1st December 2021 (only November dates) Search 'Garelochhead Range Control firing times'

Called the firing range, they told me as long as you stay on the road you're safe. The red flag warning is to warn anyone NOT to deviate to the right of the road.

NOTE: the numbers on MOD website are wrong 0141 225 8135, 0141 225 8125 the number should be 224 not 225

Also it's now 3rd December 2021 and the MOD website only has firing times for November.

Cycled route recently. No red flags; but lots of firing and guys in camouflage. They looked very surprised to see us :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

I guess they were firing blanks but rather worrying nevertheless.

Worse was the quagmire further north made by
these comedians.
