|Route outline (key)|
North Ayrshire's U35 road is 2 miles long and goes through the estate of Hunterston. It starts at the South Pillars on the A78 and goes along Highthorn Road, Beech Avenue and Old Road before it gets to the Hunterston Roundabout via Oilrig Road, which is the access road to the Hunterston nuclear power stations from the A78.
The road is mainly an access to the castle at Hunterston but should the A78 be blocked between Hunterston Roundabout and Highthorn the road is used as an emergency contraflow by police. It is also a sign-posted cycle route and bridleway, by-passing the busy A78.
