Consultation sessions are taking place this week as part of a new project looking to enhance active travel routes to one of Ayrshire's most popular destinations.

The consultation sessions are set to be held to discuss improving travel routes to Loch Doon.

Aecom, on behalf of Ayrshire Roads Alliance, is looking to collect views on proposals for improved active travel routes between Ayr and Loch Doon.

The Doon Valley Trail will look to provide technical support on proposals to deliver a high quality and inclusive active travel route through the Doon Valley between Ayr Hospital and Loch Doon, The Doon Valley Trail.

Three sessions are set to take place, with all lasting from 1pm-7pm each day.

The first is taking place at Dalrymple play park, 18 Barbieston Road on Tuesday, August 1.

Then it will be at Patna Village Green on Wednesday, August 2.

Finally, on Thursday, August 3, Dalmellington Leisure Centre will host the final session.

This project is being funded and supported by South Ayrshire Council, East Ayrshire Council, Sustrans, Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) and the Coalfield Communities Landscape Partnership (CCLP).
