The River Ayr Walk
The marker at Ayr harbour
The black slab on the beach at Ayr, next to the harbour mouth, which
indicates the western end of the River Ayr Walk.
The monument is meant to look like coal, once the main product of East Ayrshire, where the
corresponding marker at the eastern end of the River Ayr Walk on the
north shore of Glenbuck Loch is made to look like sandstone.
The construction and bridge to the left of the photograph are the start of the
walk. Being a part of an important local walking route and therefore a
tourist attraction it seems a great shame to leave it so poorly maintained.
There is no information board or sign to advise tourists what they can see.
From closer in you can see that the construction is a just a frame covered with wooden panels.
