Walk 3-5: The Ayrshire Martyrs

This is a new walk in the South Ayrshire countryside between Old Dailly and Barr with lots of connections to the Covenanters.


Starting at the church year, in Old Dailly, a series of Covenanters memorials will be visited.

The route then climbs from the Girvan valley following farm trails past newly erected wind farms and drops down into the attractive Stinchar valley to Barr Village.

Here there is more evidence of Covenanter activities and an interesting story of  a lost Covenanter’s gravestone recently returned.

There is a welcoming tea room in Barr to visit before the journey home.
