Please respect South Ayrshire's countryside and the many people who rely on it for their livelihood.

Remember: March to May each year is lambing time.

Ewes and lambs are very vulnerable at first - mums can easily lose their babies if scared or disturbed by people or dogs. Lost lambs can die very quickly. Please choose to walk trails which do not go through fields of livestock at this time of the year.

Take your litter home, or put it in a bin.
