Walk 2-3: A Tale of Two Villages: Barrhill to Barr

This walk starts in the South Ayrshire village of Barrhill and climbs up the valley to the east through fields and woods until it joins the old route to Barr village.


The route continues mostly through woodland in an area renowned for its wildlife where red deer are common and birdlife, in particular, the iconic species of black grouse and hen harriers are prevalent.

It passes the Edwardian Arts and Crafts style shooting lodge of Black Clauchrie then, by footpath and forest road it turns northward and passes the recently rebuilt house at Ferter where it emerges on the open land at Fell Hill. The route then drops down through more forest towards the Stinchar valley until it arrives at the delightful village of Barr.
