The Arran Coastal Way team are excited to unveil the new way-marker. It has been created working with local artist, Chloe Shaw (pictured with Stu Mahony, Pathworks Trainee), and the footpath team will be way-marking the whole of the 65-mile Coastal Way route over the next few months.

The design is very practical with a large arrow pointing walkers in the correct direction, and retains the bright yellow colour of previous way-marking, carried out by Dick Sim and his team of Coastal Way volunteers.

Chloe says, Gannets are a familiar sight when walking round the coast of Arran and I hope the way-markers remind people to look out and notice all the wonderful animal and bird life that can be seen.”

Coastal Way Project Co-ordinator, Rachel Sedman adds, “The new waymarkers with a noticeable design were key to our project and we think Chloe has done a great job. We hope that having the route clearly waymarked will enhance people’s enjoyment of walking the Arran Coastal Way.”
