National Cycle Route 7, Barr Castle
Looking towards Lochwinnoch on the Loop Line, a disused railway built in an era when the current line between Paisley and Ayrshire could not cope with the volume of freight needing shifting. This relief line on the west side of the lochs was closed to passengers in 1966 and freight shortly afterwards. I have a 1:50 000 map with a small length still marked - northwards to Kilbirnie. Now it is a very popular cycle path - part of National Cycle Route 7 which takes a circuitous route between Carlisle and Glasgow via Galloway.
Railway is also known as the Lochwinnoch Loop or Dalry and North Johnstone Line.
