Five trails, with distinctive waymarkers, have been established in the Girvan Valley, each route originating in the village. Leaflets regarding the local walks are available in the Library at the Community Centre, the Store and Co-op in the village. Enjoy your walk, and see you on the hills!
Dailly Community Council decided to enhance the walks with works of art and the benches, waymarkers and the footbridge in the village are sculptures that are both eye catching and practical.
Nigel Ross made the benches, which are carved from timber gifted by the Bargany and Kilkerran Estates..
Jimmy Ritchie designed and made the waymarkers to reflect local history and the then current debate on Land Reform and Access. He talked with the children of Dailly Primary School and the Oak Leaf and Tramway markers were developed from their ideas..
Steve Dilworth designed the bridge with the help from Professor lain McLeod of Strathclyde University and with Charles Scott and Partners acting as Consulting Engineers. Donald Cameron of AMSCO Alexandria built the bridge..
Juliet Dean of PACE Edinburgh was the Arts Consultant to the project.
