Help us keep the Rhins of Galloway Coast Path open

Friends of the Rhins of Galloway Coast Path

Become a Friend of the Rhins of Galloway Coast Path to receive regular updates on events and path progress. Over time we hope that the Friends will be an active group helping to keep the route in top condition, notifying the Council of any issues and promoting the rich natural and cultural heritage of the Rhins. Due to Covid 19 we are currently restricted to online events, but we hope to be back out on the trail next summer with walks, practical events and further archaeological investigations.


How you can help

Once the path is fully open it will be looked after by our small team of Rangers. However, it is a long path, many sections are difficult to get to and our ranger team is small! To help make the most of scarce resources you can help by:

  • Adopting your local section, undertaking minor works such as cutting back brambles and other vegetation and picking up litter
  • Reporting any problems to the Rangers
  • Taking part in bigger organised volunteer events
  • Promoting the route to visitors
  • Fundraising

If you would like to be a volunteer and help us out on the route please email us here.

Our friends at the Dumfries & Galloway Outdoor Access Trust (DGOAT) will be working with us to ensure the sustainability of the route in the long term. They will work with our Rangers to host the Friends of the Rhins of Galloway Coast Path and will fund raise and receive donations to help with ongoing repairs and event development.
