Girvan and Ailsa Craig

WE do what WE do as it is GOOD for US and GOOD for YOU!

Girvan is situated on the Ayrshire coast, 56 miles south of Glasgow.

STAG invite you to join us for our 2021 SOUL. Located at the SW end of the Southern Upland Boundary Fault with the impressive Ailsa Craig (volcanic plug) 10 miles off shore, Girvan is the home of STAG’s Colin Brash (planner) and was the O’Brien Family Holiday destination in the 1970/80s. A great day out is guaranteed ending with an obligatory fish supper.

Start Times from 1pm as required. Based around the Stair Park with parking adjacent on Henrietta Street. No indoor facilities. Public toilets available at ‘The Bridges’ and ‘Harbour’ Car Parks as you drive through the town on A77.

New Area and Map. Surveyed and drawn by Terry to ISSprOM 2019 4000 specification. Surveyed July/Aug/Sept 2021.

Minimal climb. Nice mix of various housing types including Glendoune Estate with lanes and alleys to catch out the careless :)
