Half of this walk is on minor roads.
Walk north from the church along a
minor road about 1 ½ km and when
nearing the main A719 take the right
minor road. Cross the A719 slightly
right to a track heading east almost 2
km to a monor road (GR 518386).
Follow this road down hill to
Newmilns by taking the second left.
As you arrive at the centre of
Newmilns by taking the second left. As you arrive at the centre of Newmilns you should see
the River Irvine on the far side of the A71 go left toward the centre of the town, cross the
road and turn right over the river. Follow the road round through the factory area after which
it becomes a rough track and finally a footpath which leads to a sport area at Galston. Cross
the river by the road bridge just before which there is a factory outlet with a handy tea room.
After the bridge on the left is a track beside the field, follow this cross the A71 and continue
back to the start along a sometimes muddy little footpath.
