South Ayrshire


South Ayrshire is blessed with a stunning and wide ranging landscape from long sandy beaches and rugged cliff edged shores with views over to Arran and beyond to rolling hillsides with peaceful and welcoming villages, providing many opportunities to get outdoors and go walking and cycling.

About us

South Ayrshire Paths Initiative is a volunteer community group dedicated to the development and promotion of a network of safe and attractive walking and cycling paths and routes in South Ayrshire.

Although there are many opportunities to get outdoors and go walking and cycling in the area, like most places, there are some barriers, safety issues, missing links etc. We work with the local council, roads department, community councils and organisations like Sustrans, Paths for All and Cycling Scotland who fund walking and cycling improvements.
