Craigie campus is located near the centre of Ayr.
As you drive into Ayr from Whitletts roundabout where
the A77 crosses the B743 Mauchline road pass the
racecourse and turn left at the traffic lights, through the
next set of traffic lights and where the road bend sharp
right go left through the gateway into Craigie campus.
Follow signs for the horticultural centre and park there.
There is a café at the centre open week days only.
Leave the car park to start out the way you came in, before you reach the driving entrance turn left
down beside a red brick wall, which should be on your right hand side.
You will come to the wide walk beside the river and should go left.
The walk goes all the way to the bypass only leaving the riverside 300m before the road.
When you reach the road go right 200m along the footpath by the main road across the River Ayr and
go right onto the footpath on the other side of the river heading back into Ayr.
Eventually after 1 ½ km you are walking beside a wall next to the road, from here there is a footbridge
across the river bringing you full circle.
Go across the footbridge going straight on and climbing through the trees up to a car park, turn left
and then fork left onto a tarmac path which leads back to the car park at the garden centre.
