On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.

Dunure to Ayr

PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO SENSITIVE FARMLAND AND DIFFICULT ROCKY COASTLINE, THIS ROUTE IS NOT SUITABLE FOR GROUPS OVER 10 PEOPLE, DOGS AND RUNNERS. The route itself starts at Kennedy Park in Dunure and has been given a moderate/difficult categorisation due to its rocky outcrops and four short tidal stretches. Near the north end of the bay beyond Drumbain, a shore cairn marks the start of a 70 step traverse path leading up to a fin cliff top route and the old railways track to Heads of Ayr Caravan Park. South of Greenan Castle, a 2.5 mile detour leads to the new Robert Burns Birthplace Museum and Burns Cottage in Alloway.
