Glenkens Way

Lead Partner:
D&G Outdoor Access Trust

This project will establish, brand and market an off-road route from New Galloway in the south of the Glenkens to Carsphairn in the north. The route closely follows the Old Pack Road which was the main route between Galloway and Ayrshire for centuries, and in places is at risk of being lost from use. The marketing of the route (approximately 20 miles) will focus on the heritage features along the route and also the wild nature of the landscape. Largely making use of established access and tracks, the route has minimal construction costs and would aim to emulate equivalent medium distance walks such as the Cowal Way.

Status: Match funding being sought
