About this book

Guide to walking or backpacking along the Ayrshire and Arran Coastal Paths, not far from Glasgow on the western coast of Scotland, UK, passing through Girvan and Ayr and taking in the Isle of Arran from Ardrossan. 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 is described in seven days on the Ayrshire mainland and a four-day tour round Arran and illustrated with fantastic photography of the area's exceptional views and scenic beauty. Detailed information about the good public transport links, which make it possible to tackle the route in day or weekend stages over time, and also the accommodation options along the way.
