Difficulty: Short but sharp with several tough climbs
This route is a great way to start linking up the villages and towns in the region, giving you inspiration for different routes as an alternative to the NCN if you’re looking for other options. Largely on quiet country lanes there are some challenging climbs on this route. The main climb is after Quarriers Village on Lochwinnoch Road. Torr road offers a shortcut to Bridge of Weir. If you stay on the yellow route make sure to turn left at the sign for Barnbrock. If you want to explore further, why not continue along this road and descend to the Castle Semple Visitor Centre on the shore of Lochwinnoch. Stunning at any time of the year.
