South Ayrshire | Village | ★★

[Dunure harbour]

The tiny fishing village of Dunure is bypassed by the main coast road south of Ayr, so you have to make a conscious decision to seek it out. If you're not in a hurry to get somewhere else, it's worth the short detour: a quiet harbour, a few rows of cottages overlooking the bobbing boats, shingle beaches with plenty of wildlife, and a sizeable ruined castle within walking distance to the south. The Isle of Arran is well seen from here, and the views even better from the nearby high ground: our route up Brown Carrick Hill is linked below.
