The River Ayr Walk - Ayr

The River Ayr Walk marker, Ayr harbour, South Ayrshire, Scotland

The black slab on the beach at Ayr which is the western end of the River Ayr Walk.

It's meant to look like coal, the main product of East Ayrshire, while the corresponding marker at the eastern end - right beside Glenbuck Loch - is made to look like sandstone.

Looking south.

The construction and bridge to the left of these photos 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 that it's untended and unmaintained.

There isn't even a marker or sign to let people know what they are looking at...

Updated - A sign board has now finally been added next to the road and we'll get photos of it on this site some time soon.

From closer in you can see that it's made of wooden panels and seems to be in very poor condition.
