Bridge back in busi­ness

Ayrshire Post - - Maybole And North Carrick -

A dan­ger­ous bridge has been re­stored to its for­mer beauty.

The Lady Hunter Blair Walk Bridge on the Straiton walk was un­us­able, mean­ing cross­ing the river was near im­pos­si­ble.

But thanks to North Car­rick Com­mu­nity Ben­e­fit Com­pany award­ing £ 5,000 to match South Ayr­shire Coun­cil’s do­na­tion, the bridge has been re­paired.

A reg­u­lar walker in the area said: “This is one of the beau­ti­ful Straiton Walks and the one where folk of­ten com­ment on the mag­i­cal el­e­ment there.

“It’s the sort of place you ex­pect to see fairies and has dif­fer­ent aspects of love­li­ness ac­cord­ing to the sea­sons.

“With the new bridge in place lo­cals and vis­i­tors will again be able to en­joy this cir­cu­lar walk in­stead of just be­ing able to use the top path.”
