Summary: The Ayrshire Coastal Path from Glenapp to Skelmorlie runs along one of the finest panoramic coastlines in the British Isles. Crowned with a superb backdrop of the ever-changing profile of the mountains of Arran across the Firth of Clyde, this coastline is steeped in history and teeming with wildlife. At Glenapp, the southern end of the Ayrshire Coastal Path connects to the Mull of Galloway Trail. and links to the Southern Upland Way at Stranraer. The Ayrshire Coastal path is now a key link in IAT Scotland, the Scottish 'chapter' of the International Appalachian Trail (Europe) which was launched in October 2011. (Source: ACP)
