My day started badly with my car running on empty all the way to Glenluce. I had to drive all the way to Castle Kennedy to get a fill up and then back to Glenluce to start todays walk.
I imagine that for locals the town of Glenluce is a much more leisurely place now that the A75 bypasses the town. No more big lorries thundering down the main street as they come from the port at Cairnryan.
I leave Glenluce and take what is now the old Military road towards Sandhead. I stayed on the road as a lot of the shoreline was MOD land. I think it’s an airfield and a bombing range.
I pass a big caravan site as I reach Sandhead which is on the Rhinns of Stranraer overlooking Luce Bay.
This is where I pick up the Mull of Galloway Trail, a 24 mile long path that runs from Stranraer to the Mull of Galloway. The path was devised by the Rotary Club of Stranraer and opened in 2012.
The trail takes me past the village of Ardwell and onto Drummore where I finish for today. I notice quite a quirky café, which was closed, with a skeleton outside.
