Loch Ryan Coastal Path: Stranraer to Glenapp

The Loch Ryan Coastal Path links the Mull of Galloway Trail to the Ayrshire Coast path. It is really a walk of two halves; as far as Cairnryan it provides pleasant shoreline walking with brief roadside sections, but after Cairnryan it climbs onto the moors and gives some very heavy going.


Shoreline and roadside paths to Cairnryan. Tracks and extremely boggy moorland after Cairnryan.

Public Transport

Good services to Stranaer - both bus and rail. Local bus service runs past Glenapp (links back to Stranraer).
