As it is a fundraising event, we are hoping to get as many people as is possible onto the island to walk the 7 miles (11.2 km) with us. We are therefore asking everyone to try their best to raise a minimum of £100 each (which is only £10 sponsorship X 10 family/friends!) which will include your registration fee and T-shirt etc.To secure your place on the Ramble we ask that you pay €50 as a deposit,this prevents people from pulling out of the walk at the last minute as this was a huge issue for us last year.

-The Ramble starts at 1pm on the day so it is advisable to get the 10am,11.15am or 12pm boat.
-The walk is 7 miles which can take anything from 2 to 3 hours depending on the pace that you walk.
-When you arrive on Rathlin there will be someone waiting at the boat to bring you over to registration.
-After the walk there will be soup and sandwiches served.
-If you are not staying on the Island, the last boat leaving Rathlin going back to Ballycastle will be at 5.30pm
-If you would like to stay overnight it is vital that you book accommodation as soon as possible as places to stay are very scarce on the Island.
