Walk the beautiful south-west corner of Scotland
Opened in 2012, the Mull of Galloway Trail runs from the Mull to Stranraer and continues north as the Loch Ryan Coastal Path for a total distance of 37 miles to Glenapp in South Ayrshire where it links with the Ayrshire Coastal Path.
The Rotary Club of Stranraer created and maintains the Trail on an entirely voluntary basis.
The Mull of Galloway Trail is now a key link in IAT Scotland, the Scottish 'chapter' of the International Appalachian Trail (Europe) which was launched in October 2011. We are also very pleased that the Mull of Galloway Trail has been selected for branding and promotion by Scottish Natural Heritage as one of Scotland’s Great Trails.
Stranraer Rotary Mull of Galloway Marathon Trial
The Marathon Trail Race which was due to take place in June 2019 starting at the Mull of Galloway and ending at the Harbour Master's office in Stranraer was postponed. Arrangements are now being made to hold the next Marathon Race on Saturday 6 June 2020. As well as the Marathon Race runners and walkers may enter the Sandhead 10 or the Fun Run and Walk. Details are available on the entry form.
Three organisations which had received funding from the Kilgallioch Community Fund were invited to give a presentation at the AGM held in Glenluce Public Hall on 25 January 2020. A presentation was made on behalf of Stranraer Rotary Coastal Path Group with an award of £200 being made to the group.
All walkers using the trail do so at their own risk and are expected to take responsibility for their own actions, the safety of themselves and others, the welfare of livestock and wildlife, and the avoidance of damage to crops, all in keeping with the recommendations of the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.
