Public notices and closures

Church Walk: Blairquhan Bridge CLOSED

The Blairquhan Bridge is currently closed for safety reasons, due to damage to the structure.

Please do not attempt to use the bridge, for your own safety.

Thank you for your co-operation.

This means that the Church Walk is not available along its entire route, and therefore

cannot be walked as a circular route. Some other sections of the route can still be walked.


A719 Dunure Road - Burton Underpass

The contractor appointed by Ayrshire Roads Alliance, will shortly begin on essential work to replace the unsafe road crossing over Dunure Road and provide the missing link below Dunure Road between the Alloway/Burton cycle path and the NCN7 Greenan to Ayr Town Centre.

The work includes removing the existing road to excavate between the abutments of an old, buried structure. Once exposed the contractor will lift precast concrete units into place between these before backfilling to reinstate the embankment and reconstruct the road over.

There will be a temporary site compound and crane pad area, as well as work to remove and then reinstate part of the existing cycle route.

This will work require temporarily closing a section of the A719 road, and also a section of the cycle route, at certain periods. A signed diversion will be provided.

The work is planned to take place from Monday, 13 February to Friday, 6 April 2023.

Footbridge Closure - Waukmill, near Woodend, Dailly

Due to the damage caused by heavy rainfall and spate conditions in the River, the bridge over the Water of Girvan at Waukmill, near Woodend, 2km north-east of Dailly, is in a dangerous condition and unavailable for public use, for the foreseeable future. For their own safety, members of the public should not attempt to cross the bridge.

King Coil's Bridge Closed - Parkmill Road, Tarbolton

For the foreseeable future, Core Path SA23, between Parkmill Road and Core Path SA24 at Coilsfield Mains Farm, is not usable as a through route, because the private bridge, known as King Coil's Bridge or the Loundsdale Bridge, 40 metres to the south-east of the C115 Parkmill Road, which carries the route over the Water of Fail, is in a dangerous condition. For their own safety, members of the public should not attempt to cross the bridge. An alternative route from Parkmill Road to Coilsfield Mains exists along SA24, to the west.

Lady Hunter Blair Trail Closed


The landowner has been ordered by Forestry and Land Scotland to remove Larch trees from the Lambdougty Glen, to reduce the spread of the tree disease. Therefore the Lady Hunter Blair Trail through Lambdoughty Glen, is temporarily closed to the public. This is to allow mandatory and essential forestry works to be undertaken safely. Access takers should not attempt to use the trail, in the interests of their own, and the forest operatives', safety.

The Trail will remain closed for the duration of the forestry works. These works were expected to be completed by the end of 2021.

Unfortunately, due to circumstance out-with the control of the landowner/ manager the works have been delayed.

Thank you for your co-operation.
