Services are being cancelled or revised between Glasgow Central and Stranraer via Kilmarnock, Ayr and Girvan, and Girvan and Kilmarnock.

17:00 Kilmarnock-Stranraer - cancelled

17:01 Girvan-Kilmarnock - starting from Ayr at 17:30

19:03 Stranraer-Kilmarnock - cancelled

Tickets are being accepted on Stagecoach buses in the meantime.
