Know your Tides
On the South Section, over a few days around High Spring Tide, you may be delayed for 1-4 hours by the rising tide at several points marked on our Guide Book maps. Simple and careful planning will avoid unnecessary delays. Packing a pair of plimsolls would allow easy wading.
NB. HSTs occur every two weeks at the New and Full Moons and are highest around mid-day. They are much higher in late Autumn and Winter than in the Summer months – when there is no real problem.
Check tidal information for Ayr on the Web at Easytide – and the important details contained in the Guide Book.
