Auchincarroch Road
This is the point, shown in the opposite direction in NS4081 : Auchincarroch Road, where the pavement switches from one side of the road to the other.

This road is one leg of a route that is named, on account of its shape, the Horseshoe. At the time of writing, the only part of the route that has a pavement is the section from the foot of Auchincarroch Road (shown in NS3980 : Auchincarroch Road) to the turnoff for the landfill site (NS4181 : Turnoff to the landfill site).

Nevertheless, the Horseshoe as a whole is accessible to pedestrians, though care must still be taken to look out for passing traffic.

This leg of the route is signposted at its foot as a core path (as shown in NS3980 : Auchincarroch Road). That core path extends to the junction shown in NS4383 : Road junction.

All of the remainder of the Horseshoe, from that junction to the foot of the other leg (see NS4083 : One end of the Horseshoe) is now part of the John Muir Way (the creation in 2016 of a Kilpatrick Hills Path, a new part of the John Muir Way, means that all of the Horseshoe is now either part of the core path or of the John Muir Way, and hence can be used by pedestrians).
