From all the marvelous paths one can travel while exploring the Scottish walking trails, one that I would be delighted to experiment is the Ayrshire Coastal path as illustrated in the map above. Just imagine how exciting it is to see seals, porpoise and perhaps even otters! Wow…
We did drive through some of the gorgeous cities along the West Coast in our previous trips to Scotland but to do it by foot instead, must also be a beautiful journey. The trail map is on my dreamboard
As we were visiting the city of Alloway, in Ayr, we took a lot of pictures which are featured in your recent great post featuring “The Poet’s Path in Alloway and Tam O’ Shanter story” .
Today I’m sharing a video that I took pleasure to create with some of those pictures taken while walking down Robert Burns’s Poet Path, after our visit of the low whitewashed thatched ‘auld clay biggin’ where Robert Burns, Scotland’s National Bard was born on 25th January 1759.
A wooden bridge leads to the Poet’s Path which then winds its way through a pleasant green area planted with trees and lined with a series of weathervanes illustrating the most striking scenes of ‘Tam O’Shanter‘.
“But little Mouse, you are not alone,
In proving foresight may be vain:
The best laid schemes of mice and men
Go often askew,
And leave us nothing but grief and pain,
For promised joy!
Still you are blest, compared with me!”
― Robert Burns
Hope you enjoy!
