Ayr Loop

This route begins and ends in Ayr, along part of National Cycle Route 7. Before long it's off into the rolling green hills of the open countryside, at times following the National Byway Cycle Route. There are a few steady climbs on the route to test your legs with many amazing views back over to the west, including some all the way over the sea to the jagged peaks of the Isle of Arran.
