Walk 9

Walk 9 is a new walk around Carrick Castle. It is accessed from the new track up to Carrick Castle Estate Lodge and Barn near the Carrick River bridge.

Walk up this track and pass the barn taking the track to the right until you join the original track on Walks 1, 2, etc. where you turn left.

Continue up the path passing the water treatment building on the left and then take the next turning to the left that takes you down to a new bridge across the Carrick River.

This path then takes you over the hill behind Carrick Castle village and down to Carrick Farm where you come into the village car park by the castle.

The walk ranges between easy and moderate up and down the hill sections and takes about one hour.
