 Walk Details

A National Trust ranger led guided walk of Grangemore Dunes at the Bann Estuary

 By arrangement only, this secluded land locked sand dune system will be open to walkers. The walk will be 4 miles long, and takes in sand dunes, saltmarsh, farmland, estuary & beach.

The little known Grangemore Dunes, are located upwards of 2 miles from the present coastline, not the only hint of an unusual site.  With the entire site being designated as a ‘SAM’ scheduled ancient monument, as well as a nature reserve.

Special permission to access private farmland, and tides suitable for estuary section walking.
