Hey, I am an official Collection Editor for Komoot, researching the best and most popular hiking routes for you. Raised in the Peak District, I love wild moors and rolling hills. You’ll catch me hiking, running and riding lots of landscapes, though, as well as exploring Bristol, my home these days. If you have any feedback on my routes, I’d love to hear it — get in touch. Enjoy!

      This final stage meanders alongside the River Ayr through open farmland and country estates to the charming seaside town of Ayr. Expect beautiful woodlands, great river views and a golden finish overlooking the Firth of Clyde.

      To begin, hike along the north bank and underneath Enterkine Viaduct. Continue towards Gadgirth Bridge but stay on the north bank and enter the woodland east of Annbank.

      Rejoin the riverside after Annbank, cross to the south bank via the road bridge and then make a wide loop through Craighall Wood. Follow the river around Pheasant Nook and then continue through Coronation Wood.

      Cross the river via Oswald’s Bridge and then hike through farmland. Join the road and follow it over the A77 bridge before dropping back to the riverside. Hike along the south bank and then cross once again opposite the cemetery. You make one final crossing to Ayr centre.

      The final section winds through town to make an epic finish on South Pier, where the River Ayr finishes its journey by joining the Firth of Clyde. Here, you get fine views of Ailsa Craig and the Isle of Arran. Be sure to rest a moment on the sandy beach, too.

      Ayr has an excellent choice of accommodation, places to eat and drink, shops and other attractions. The town also has good rail and bus links.

      This riverside ramble explores an atmospheric castle ruin, heads underneath the tallest railway viaduct in the UK and winds through an ancient wooded gorge that is an essential habitat for wildlife in the area.

      While yesterday’s walk was all about the infant Ayr, this stage sees the river mature into a wide and powerful body of water. At several points, you see the power of the water as it gushes through narrow ravines.

      Leave Sorn on the road and take the footpath beside the Ayr. Cross the river twice at Catrine and continue along the south bank. After crossing underneath the A76 bridge, you join a short section of road and then take a footpath left which passes underneath Ballochmyle Viaduct, the highest railway viaduct in Britain that is still in use today.

      A short step later, it is worth a detour to see Kingencleugh Castle. Occupying a secluded spot between Mauchline and the River Ayr, the 17th-century ruin is worth seeing.

      Rejoin the trail and hike to Haugh, where you depart from the riverside for a while on roads. Take the footpath near the disused quarry and hike west to Paulshill Plantation, where you rejoin the Ayr.

      The next section explores the Ayr Gorge Woodlands, one of the most important habitats in Ayrshire. The ancient and beautiful woodland, which covers the steep sandstone ravine, is a real highlight of the hike.

      A little after the reserve, you come to a diversion sign and must continue to Stair along quiet roads as there was a landslide and the path is now impassable.

      There is not much accommodation in Stair. However, very close to where this Tour finishes is the Enterkine House Hotel, which has rooms, a restaurant and bar.

      Stage 1 follows the infant River Ayr through moorland that was once a hotbed of industry. While remnants of the area’s industrial past can still be observed, wildlife and utter tranquility pervades these days.

      The Tour begins at Glenbuck Loch, which is the source of the River Ayr. From the picturesque lochside, join the former railway track bed along the river enjoying views towards the border hills of Ayrshire and Lanarkshire. You hike past plenty of ruins associated with the area’s industrial heritage.

      Cross Garpel Water at Tibbie's Brig and continue along the track bed for a short distance before heading along footpaths to the riverside. Next, cross the Ayr twice in quick succession via Laigh Walwood Bridge and the stepping stones.

      The next section takes you through Airds Moss Nature Reserve. The site of a charcoal-fired blast furnace for commercial iron production in the 18th century, this area is now a haven for wildlife, especially birdlife.

      After crossing the Ayr at Greenock Mains Bridge, continue along the north bank through moorland, farmland and pockets of woodland to Sorn, where this stage finishes. While facilities are not abundant in the village, the Sorn Inn serves good food and drink and has rooms. There are a couple of other accommodation options nearby, though.
