Ayrshire Coastal Path
The Ayrshire Coastal Path stretches from the southern to northernmost tips of the county of Ayrshire – 147km of glorious coastline. Almost the entire route has fabulous views out to sea – in fact for the most part you’re walking along beaches, cliff tops and tracks beside the sea. There are views of Ailsa Craig and Arran along most of the route. A wonderful route to run with dogs in warmer weather as you’re never far from the cooling sea.
This route is local to us, and we regularly explore the 60k or so between Maidens and Portencross. The photos are obviously of landmarks (of which there are many), and these are connected by long sections of sandy (or sometimes rocky/stony) beach. Very occasionally you have to pass through a small village or town.
