12km east of Kilmarnock between Newmilns and Darvel on
the south side of the River Irvine.
If travelling from Kilmarnock turn right in the centre of
Newmilns and cross the river Irvine. Turn left beside the river.
The road has a wooded bank on the left down to the river. Park
near the end of this road.
Walk beside the river with
the river to your left, you
will come past an estate
gate, do not go through
these gates, instead continue
along the riverside on a
tarmac track which is no
thoroughfare to cars. After 1
½ km you will arrive at the
east gate of the estate, enter
here and walk almost back
on yourself up the drive.
Reaching an interesting
bridge over the gorge.
Just before the bridge fork off left up a track with the gorge on the right, leading up to a rough
road, go right eventually going above (south) of the estate buildings and joining a tarmac drive,
go straight ahead and right downhill at the next junction in 150m fork left off the tarmac drive.
Follow this rough track down to the west gate house going right back to the start.
