Doonfoot Bridge, River Doon
Doonfoot, south of Ayr, South Ayrshire
A panorama of the whole area from off-shore.
This is known as the Doonfoot Millennium Bridge and is a footbridge between
Cunning Park and Doonfoot just short of Greenan Shore. It enables walkers and
cyclists to travel up and down the coast avoiding a mile-long diversion inland.
The beach on the left reaches to Ayr harbour about 2 miles away and on the right
the beach is about 1.5 miles long and runs past Greenan Castle and Craig Tara
Holiday Park, once called Butlin’s at Ayr.
People often ask if 197 aerial photography’s work ever affects wildlife?
The answer is always a clear and unequivocal no.
In this view as well as ducks, swans and seabirds all swimming happily to and
fro under the camera you can also see on the left where a hippo just submerged
and the wake of a playful dolphin on the right, just under the bridge.
OK. Tell the truth. The bit about the ducks was a fib.
The Brig O’Doon is about a mile upstream from here.
