Ayrshire Coastal Path 10: Ardrossan to Portencross


Leaving the Three Towns behind, this section of the Ayrshire Coastal Path stays close to the sea, following a mix of surfaced shared cycleway close by the road at first, then by the sea and sandy beach to reach the tiny harbour and ancient castle at Portencross.

Good bus / train links to Ardrossan. Portencross has no public transport; 2km walk from West Kilbride (which would make an alternative break of stage for those using public transport).
