Cunninghame Ramblers have recently made a £300 donation to the Ayrshire Coastal Path. This will allow us to continue our maintenance and development programme.

Trail Manager Jimmy Begg commented: “We are very well aware that Cunninghame Ramblers use and enjoy the path a lot – and have for many years contributed a great amount of money towards our maintenance work.”

This money is much appreciated and essential to our continuing work of path development and maintenance.

Jimmy continued: “It is too difficult to be specific on what this magnificent cheque will be spent on, since ‘maintenance’ covers things like biannual servicing of our mower and brushcutters, and some of the fuel costs incurred with distant projects at Glenapp or Knock Hill, Largs; or purchasing new plastic marker posts and postcrete; and just now, some new hand tools and other kit for our equipment stock – to save on borrowing those of our Pathminders.

Here locally, between Dunure and Croy Bay, for several years we have been greatly helped by Angus Craig of Dunure Mains, with his quadbike and flail mower, who can now do in a couple of hours what it took several Pathminders about three/four mornings’ work to accomplish with brushcutters and mower! 

So, we in turn, are at present helping Angus to save some of his valuable time, by building a new quadbike-bearing sleeper bridge on Drumshang to replace a small old footbridge now at the rotting stage after fifteen years – having replaced its disintegrating sister bridge at Langdale, Ballantrae, last year.

Donations such as this from Cunninghame Ramblers make these projects possible
