B7024 Ayr - Maybole
Halfway Bridge

The B7024 is a secondary route from Ayr to Maybole, following a similar route to the A77. The road was originally unclassified but had gained its number by 1932.

We start to the south of Ayr town centre at a TOTSO on the A79 by St Leonard's Church and head south along the residential Monument Road. As we continue, the houses on the right - and then on both sides - give way to a park, after which we enter the village of Alloway, now part of the Ayr urban area. We go through the village centre and pass Robert Burns's birthplace. After passing a cricket field a left turn leads to the Burns Monument and museum and the A77, after which we cross the River Doon. The Auld Brig is visible to the left.

We continue south and climb out of the valley before contouring for the next couple of miles. We go through the hamlet of Culroy and then continue across the fields to enter Maybole along Alloway Road. The road runs alongside the Ayr to Stranraer railway line, crossing it halfway to reach Barns Terrace. It's not long before the road splits. Barns Terrace continues ahead, apparently a spur of the B7023, whilst the B7024 TOTSOs left onto Barns Road; this ends on the B7023 Culzean Road just before that road's junction with the A77.
