The South Ayrshire leg of the Commonwealth Games Queen’s baton relay is underway.

In day 7 of the relay in Scotland, which got underway on Saturday 14 June, thousands of people are expected to line the route through South Ayrshire’s baton relay communities and take part in a family fun Queen’s Baton Relay celebration at the Low Green in Ayr.

The baton set off from Ballantrae at 8.25am, passing through Girvan, Maybole, Alloway, Mossblown, Tarbolton, Symington, Dundonald, Troon, Prestwick and Ayr, before reaching the Low Green event.

The route will give thousands of people the chance to see the Queen’s Baton Relay on their doorstep – and cheer on the 107 inspirational batonbearers who will carry the baton throughout South Ayrshire.
