The Coastal Path north of Ayr becomes increasingly busy as the farmland and rolling Carrick hills give way to once-proud seaside resorts and industrial endeavour. This section leaves the historic port and County town of Ayr to follow wide sandy bays past the airport at Prestwick to the ferry terminal at Troon, both responsible for drawing tourists away from their surrounding areas in the clamour for cheap holidays abroad.
