This walk is especially worthwhile in May, when the bluebells are in full flower. You enter Ayr Gorge woodlands following the river, but this time through a semi-natural woodland designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). Then there are magnificent views of the Ayrshire countryside as you walk along the banks of the River Ayr. A drink or meal can be obtained at the Stair Inn before following the riverbank to Annbank and on to Auchencruive.
