Flanked by the rolling Galloway Hills on one side, and the Ayrshire Coastal Path on the other, there are plenty of gorgeous walks for you to explore.


2.25 miles
Dow Hill

The little energy required to tackle this local favourite is just one reason to complete a trail which brings rich rewards. En route a good track climbs over the Ayr to Stranraer railway line and goes past a deep ravine locally known as “Sundown Valley”. At the head of the ravine is a delightful spot where two burns meet. The Dow Hill (pronounced doo) at 518ft is the site of an ancient fort and a good viewpoint. From the top there are breathtaking views of the Byne Hill, Ailsa Craig, the Isle of Arran, the Firth of Clyde, and Girvan. The trail is completed by descending South West to the railway line and along the footpath adjacent to the main road.

View the Girvan Trails leaflet for route information.
