Pinmore Tunnel

A railway tunnel which cuts through a southwestern spur of Dinvin Hill in South Ayrshire, a half-mile (1 km) north northwest of Pinmore. The Pinmore Tunnel was completed in 1874 and comprises a single-track bore, some 497m (543 yards) in length. Sections were originally lined with iron plates, while elsewhere bricks were used. These plates were soon declared unsafe and had to be replaced with further brickwork. The tunnel remains in use carrying the Glasgow South Western Line between Girvan and Barrhill. The A714 road passes over the tunnel.
