Lendalfoot beach is a mile long sandy beach on the Ayrshire coast.
There are plenty of lay-bys to park the car which allow visitors to explore the beach. Sit on the sand or take a stroll and admire the breathtaking scenery which looks out across the Firth of Clyde towards Ailsa Craig.
Nestled in the colourful hills behind the village of Lendalfoot is Carleton Castle. It is said to be haunted by the ghostly screams of the seven wives of the baron that once lived there, who murdered all of his wives by pushing them over the cliff.
