Cairn Table, near Muirkirk

A proper hill walk to the summit of a proper Ayrshire hill. This circular route offers variety by returning via the old Muirkirk to Sanquhar drover's road. The walk is relatively straightforward but there is a very boggy section on the approach, over which progress is aided by some boardwalks and new pathwork.


Grass/earth footpaths and good aggregate tracks; some boggy sections.
