Does a certain directory exist in /Volumes

Hello…New to Macs and applescipt/terminal

I need a way to find out if a specific folder/directory (not a disk or drive) exists at the root of /Volumes. The closest I’ve got is something like: tell application "Finder" set dirList to {do shell script "ls /Volumes"} repeat with i from 1 to count of dirList display dialog (item i of dirList) end repeat end tell
but that gives me one record as a concatenation, and it seems a bit unwieldy.

Any suggestions?

How bout like this?

tell application "Finder"
	if exists folder "path to folder name" then -- example:  "HD:Applications"
		--  the folder exists do whatever
		--  the folder does NOT exist
	end if
end tell


the ls command returns the names of contents of the folder, separated by a new line character.
the paragraph keyword coerces the result to a list.

set dirList to paragraphs of (do shell script "ls /Volumes")
repeat with i in dirList
	display dialog i
end repeat

Note: The Finder is no needed

Very nice. Thank you both!
