Biosphere – Proud Supporter
Dailly (Scottish Gaelic: Dail Mhaol Chiarain) is a village in South Ayrshire, Scotland. It is located on the Water of Girvan, 8 kilometres (5.0 miles) south of Maybole, and 5 kilometres (3.1 miles) east of Old Dailly. “New Dailly”, as it was originally known, was laid out in the 1760s as a coal-mining village.
Dailly is a former mining village in South Ayrshire. We have shops, a library, doctors’ surgery, activity centre, parks and a parish church.
We are lucky enough to be surrounded by woodlands, farmland and low uplands, and residents and visitors alike can enjoy the local surroundings by walking one (or more !) of the five Dailly Trails, or visiting the ruined 16th Century Dalquharran Castle which is easily accessed by crossing the River Girvan via the footbridge.
The area is full of wild life, including Roe deer, badger , Fox and Otter, and several bat species, as well as being a fantastic area for bird watching , both along the river and through the woodland.
Dailly is located towards the edge of the Galloway and South Ayrshire Biosphere area , and as a Community we are now very excited to be Proud Supporters of GSAB.and hope that by supporting and encouraging the aims and outcomes of the Biosphere Communities we will help to protect and promote our unique local environment and heritage .
