Barrmill Walks – Way Marker 4


Waterside Railway Bridge

Brown Hare

This bridge was constructed in 1888 as part of the Barrmill to Kilwinning railway. Looking over the fields you will see the three farms Gurlston, Shotts
and Newhouse. Both Newhouse and Gurlston have a distinctive ‘tall’ barn, separate from the main farm. Gurlston had a modernised frontage to the main farmhouse of 1810.

Look out for Brown Hares here as, although declining, this is still their traditional Barrmill stronghold.
