Links with: River Ayr Way, Mull of Galloway Trail
This 100 mile route takes walkers along one of the finest coastlines in the British Isles, hugging cliff tops and skirting along beaches all the while offering views of the mountains of Arran across the Firth of Clyde.
The route is predominantly a beach walk but the hill tracks and rocky shores between Glen App and Girvan and from Dunure to Ayr and north of Largs can make for demanding walking and overall it is considered to be a route for well-equipped and agile walkers. As a coastal route it’s also worthy of note that some sections can be impassible at high tide.
For those eager for the challenge however the Ayrshire Coastal Path amply rewards with its wildlife – there are some 135 species of bird, seals, otters, roe deer and foxes – historic sites - including Turnberry Castel, believed to be the birthplace of Robert the Bruce - and sea views.
