Ayrshire and Arran Coastal Paths

Ayrshire and Arran Coastal Paths

by: Keith Fergus
Featuring 11 day stages across a 150-mile coastline full of beautiful sandy beaches and secluded coves, this guide to the Ayrshire and Arran Coastal Paths is a wonderful showcase of long distance coastal walking at its finest. Historic sites including many castles passed along the way show the area's rich past, and there are obvious links here to significant Scottish figures including Robert the Bruce and Robert Burns.

The route includes seven days on the Ayrshire mainland and a four-day tour around the Isle of Arran. The guide provides all the information required to plan and to walk the route. An introduction sets the scene and includes history, geology, wildlife, getting there and getting around, when to go, accommodation and other practical details. Each day stage has its own overview of the day's highlights followed by a detailed route description supported by full colour 1:50,000 Ordnance Survey maps. There is also fantastic colour photography throughout the book illustrating the area's exceptional views and scenic beauty. Appendices provide detailed listings for accommodation and public transport.
