This Ayrshire Trail is to accompany the
article on the geology of Ayrshire and consists of a drive along the
Ayrshire coast picking out the points of geological interest along
the way. Simply follow the coast road between Ayr and Stranraer.
This is a stunning stretch of coastal scenery and you are bound to
have already done the drive many times already. So here is another
excuse to do it again and reinforce your knowledge at the same time.
There are lots of safe parking points on the route so you can stop
regularly and study the geology article and the scenery in detail
and safety. There are also lots of tea, coffee and eating places to
make the trip a real day out. It is just over 100 miles round trip
(plus the extra distance needed to get to and from your home). Donít
forget to use your imagination to visualise the smoking volcanoes
and erupting lava, the miles of ice over your head as well as
walking on the sea bed! Have a great day out!
