Kennedy's Pass

Kennedy's Pass lies on the course of the A77 Trunk Road, 4 miles (6.5 km) southwest of Girvan on the South Ayrshire coast. It used to represent a narrowing in the road, which follows the raised beach along the coast. As the road rounds a little headland here, it is constricted between cliffs and a distinctive rock pinnacle. Widening the road to create the modern A77 created a challenge. The easier option would seem to have been to demolish the rock pinnacle, but instead the landmark was preserved and the cliff cut back on the landward side of the road.
