Ayr to Turnberry – A719 – MotoGoLoco Classics

3rd July 2015 by  in MotoGoLoco Classic Motorcycle Routes

As you leave the town of Ayr (Inbhir Àir, “Mouth of the River Ayr”), head south on the A719 and visit the birthplace of Robert Burns, Scotland’s most famous bard.

Ayr to Turnberry

Jump back on the coastal main road and check out the Electric Brae, or Croy Brae as it’s known locally. The hill is an optical illusion where you appear to be going uphill when actually you’re traveling down.

Next, stop at Culzean (pronounced “Culain”) Castle and Country Park, where General Dwight D. Eisenhower had an apartment during the Second World War.

Finish at Turnberry and enjoy a walk down the magnificent beach bordered by a championship golf course.
