Diversions and Exemption Orders
Ayrshire Coastal Path (and core path SA2), between Glenapp Kirk and Ballantrae Harbour, via Currarie Port.
Due to improvements taking place to the Moyle Interconnector cable at Currarie Port, the above section of the Ayrshire Coastal Path/ core path SA2 is diverted to avoid Currarie Port. The section of track to Currarie Port will be used for heavy construction traffic and will comprise a construction site, therefore access takers should not attempt to use it, in the interests of their own safety.
A temporary diversion, on the single track public road from the Currarie Port track, via High Ballochdowan farm, Kilantringan Bridge, Low Ballochdowan farm, Craigalbert farm and Meadow Park farm, to rejoin the original line of the Ayrshire Coastal Path, just south of Ballantrae, has been put in place whilst the construction phase is happening.
The diversion route is signposted on the ground. The diversion will be in place until approx. June 2016.
Details of the path diversion route can be seen also be seen on the Ayrshire Coastal Path website

Temporary Diversion of Core Path SA51: Girvan to Barr Right of Way, Laggan and Pinmore Walks
Piedmont Hill to Barbae Hill Section
The Council gives notice that, to permit the safe construction of Assel Valley wind farm by Falck Renewables Wind Limited,
the section of core path SA51 described in part 1 of the Schedule below will be unavailable for public use temporarily,
during the entire construction period. As the affected section of core path will be used by heavy vehicles and will form
part of a construction site during this period, access takers should not attempt to use it, in the interests of safety.
It is estimated the affected section of core path will be unavailable from 1st August 2015 until 31st October 2016, or during
such extended period as is necessary to complete the safe construction of the wind farm. On completion of construction work,
the section of core path will be re-opened to the public.
A temporary alternative route of approximately 2km is signposted around the northern edge of the wind farm construction
site, to join the original route at the ruins of Barbae farm and will be signposted around the
perimeter of the construction site for the duration of construction work.
