 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.

‘Very enjoyable, friendly guides and interesting information, lovely views and varied terrains.’

‘We loved this interesting walk.  Just the right mix of walk and talk.  A privilege to be able to undertake it.  Terrific guide – so caring and knowledgeable.  Thank you!’

‘Really enjoyable walk and the welcome was marvellous.  Many thanks for the tea and scones – all delicious.’

‘I enjoyed the walk; the views were outstanding and not an area I would normally explore so I appreciated our guide. Barry, stopping along the way.’
