Ram­blers plan walk to cas­tle ruin at Eglin­ton

Ayrshire Post - - News -

South Ayr­shire Ram­blers are or­gan­is­ing a pleas­ant, mainly sub­ur­ban walk of about 11 miles on paths, tracks and mi­nor roads on Satur­day, March 17.

From Dreghorn, the walk passes through sev­eral other dis­tricts of Irvine to reach Eglin­ton Coun­try Park, where it passes the Stand­ing Stones and Loch be­fore ar­riv­ing at the re­mains of Eglin­ton Cas­tle.

Af­ter vis­it­ing the Dove­cote, the re­turn route con­tin­ues through the out­skirts of Irvine to the start­ing point. De­spite its length, the walk is very easy, as the en­tire route is al­most flat.

The ter­rain is such that a good pair of walk­ing shoes will be ad­e­quate for those not wish­ing to wear boots.

Any­one wish­ing to join this walk, but re­quir­ing fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, should con­tact the leader Robert Pol­lock on 01292 315765.

The meet­ing point is the pub­lic car park at Prest­wick Town Rail Sta­tion, for 8.50am de­par­ture.
