Cromarty Avenue Green Space

Cromarty Avenue lies east to west in North Saanich’s Ardmore neighborhood. Ardmore is a Gaelic term meaning to “large headland” which relates to “homes beside the sea” and cromarty refers to a crooked or unlikely occurrence. The forested green spaces connect with Ardmore Drive along about one hundred and eighty meters. The section to Turnberry Place is about one hundred and forty five meters although most of the pathway is along the avenue itself.  Cromarty Avenue Green Spaces can be used to access both Glenelg and Hartfell avenues’ green spaces and trails. These trails are used by dog walkers, horse riders and hikers.

You can get to Cromarty Avenue Green Space from Pat Bay Highway.  Leave the highway at Exit 26, the McTavish Interchange, an unique and confusing series of roundabouts that make a multi-circle roadway overpass. Take the third exit onto McTavish Road then take the second exit to stay on McTavish Road. Follow McTavish Road past the East Saanich Intersection and continue until you reach West Saanich Road (BC 17A N) turn right onto West Saanich Road. Follow along this road until you reach Ardmore Drive and the golf course. Stay on Ardmore Drive as it curves and turns to head northward along the waterfront homes. Turn right onto Braemar Avenue, the second right along Ardmore Avenue and take the next left onto Glenelg Avenue and continue to Cromarty Avenue. The pathway is found at both ends of the road. There is roadside parking.
