The AUGUST Weekday Walk will be a circuit of Great Cumbrae Island on WEDNESDAY 24th .. walking anti-clockwise from the ferry landing, and visiting Fintray Bay and the town of Millport.
The meeting point for parking is Broomfield Place in Largs at 10:00, which is a short walk from the ferry terminal.
Satnavs: KA30 8DR
Maps: GR NS203589
We should make it onto the 10:15 ferry, which runs about every 15 minutes during the high season. The return ferry trip costs £3.60 per person .. sorry, no senior citizen’s reduction!
There's a café at Fintray Bay .. which is about half way to Millport .. for a coffee break, or we might continue on to Millport for a break.
You can click the map below for a printable version ....
Walk distance is about 16km (10 miles) on a quiet tarred road, with virtually no ascent .. which could be reduced to about 11km (7 miles) by taking the bus from Millport back to the ferry terminal. Likely walking time is probably 4-4.5 hours, but adding in the stops ....
After the walk, we could visit Nardini’s in Largs for an ice cream before heading for home.
If you're going on this walk, please let me know by Tuesday 23rd August so that I knew who to expect .. !
