Situated in Doonfoot, only two miles from Ayr town centre, this converted mews cottage has direct access to the River Doon. From here, guests can take a short walk to the beautiful sandy beach and onto the Ayrshire Coastal Path, Scotland’s long distance walking route, a hundred miles along one of the finest panoramic coastlines in the British Isles.
Crowned with a superb backdrop of the ever-changing profile of the mountains of Arran across the Firth of Clyde, this coastline is teeming with wildlife, including red squirrels, deer, otters and seals, and is a haven for bird watchers.
Inland, there are gardens and castles to visit, riding, racing and a choice of golf courses. Culzean Castle, a National Trust property, is spectacular and one of Ayrshire’s most popular tourist attractions.
Steeped in tradition and history, the cottage is located close to Burns Cottage, The Burns Memorial Museum and the Brig ó Doon, the bridge from the famous poem Tam ó Shanter.
Day trips to Ireland can be taken from Cairnryan. Glasgow, Stirling and Edinburgh are perfect for a day out, as is Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, with ferry links to the islands of Arran, Bute and Cumbrae, all within easy reach.
