Walk: Cascades on the Caaf - Lynn Spout

North Ayrshire | Dalry | Short walk | ★★★★

[Lynn Spout]

North Ayrshire isn't well known for its dramatic waterfalls, but Lynn Spout is a true gem. It's the highlight of this short but beautiful, wooded circuit just outside Dalry. The route explores both banks of the Caaf Water to reveal a stretch of burn liberally scattered with little cascades and rapids. The best views of the waterfall are from near the base: a short scramble down off the main path. Wear some grippy shoes and catch it after rainfall - that shouldn't be too much of a challenge here in western Scotland.
