Starting at Innerwell Fishery, although the nets have gone now, this path goes through the wood along the shore to Garlieston.

If the tide is in, the waves will be crashing on the rocks and if the tide is out there will be pools and rocky bays.There are remains of old harbours at Innerwell and also Port Whapple. It is interesting to look across the bay at Cairnsmore and Cairnharrow to the north and Carrick beach to the east.

On a very clear day the Cumberland hills can be seen. The walk continues round Eggerness Point and into Garlieston Bay. There should be lots of sea birds and spring flowers to see.

We finish off with lunch at the Harbour Inn in Garlieston (paid separately).
