The River Afton, also known as Afton Water, is a local river which can be found in New Cumnock and runs thoughout much of the village before flowing into the larger River Nith. The River Afton is located not far from Freshland, and the nearby local grass fields, wooded forest and rolling hills were an common testing site for the Royal Fresh Air Force soon after it was first discovered by Commander Scottie I in 2021. The River Afton is memorialised in the popular poem "Sweet Afton", written by the 18th century Scottish poet Robert Burns. Several townships in the United States were named "Afton" in honour. Afton Water is home to an variety of large rocks and tree branches, as much of the river is surrounded by large wooded forest.
