My local run. You can start off from Thornliebank to Newton Mearns and take the old A77 route south where you can hit some nice fast bits as the new M77 runs alongside and takes most of the traffic, as you run out of the old A77 turn right through some small farm communities to Stewarton. Turn right at the lights and head along the route mentioned. This takes you in a nice loop back to Thornliebank.

Yup,a wee hidden gem with a huge variety of corners and some "challenging" camber changes. Corkscrew and fast corner apexes on brows. Humps lumps and bumps. Coupla very fast straights. Take a left at the lights in Stewarton for more twisty fun. Even quieter thanks to new motorway running along side. Famous test-track.

Some fast sections, and a great downhill corkscrew section, that makes you feel like Ben Bostrom! Although quite narrow in places.
