Ayrshire

Ayrshire in Scotland’s south west has miles of quiet coastline and is a region just waiting to be explored, rich in beauty and awash with cultural heritage.

Positioned between the rugged heights of the Galloway Hills in the south and the Firth of Clyde to the north, a holiday in this area provides a wealth of wonderful vistas and lots of fantastic activities and days out.

We have years of experience of offering holiday cottages in Ayrshire to our holidaymakers so why not let us suggest a few things to see and do.

Culzean Castle and Country Park is typical of Ayrshire’s undoubted charms. This huge castle is one of Scotland’s most beloved and once you visit you’ll see why. Set off the south Ayrshire coast it tells the tale of the Kennedys, one of Scotland’s most famous families, whose history can be traced back to Robert the Bruce. Culzean still contains the family’s trophies; the house and stunning grounds, stand as magnificent tributes to its heritage.

Robert Burns is probably Ayrshire’s most famous former resident and one of Scotland’s favourite sons. The Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in the village of Alloway is a fascinating tribute and a great visitor attraction in its own right. The nearby Burns Monument and Gardens prove an equally popular tribute and offer a fantastic opportunity to brush up on Scottish culture and history while admiring your idyllic surroundings.

Dean Castle and Country Park is undoubtedly one of the region’s best-kept secrets. Explore the castle’s fascinating history before taking a leisurely stroll in the grounds and enjoy a host of activities in the 200 acre park. You can even bring the dog!

Ayrshire’s varied landscape makes it perfect for a variety of different holidays. Pet owners and those looking for active breaks will find a wealth of activities in the rugged hills and lowlands. If you’d prefer a more relaxed pace, you’ll find a number of excellent golf courses that take advantage of the beautiful scenery.

The region’s colorful history and rich heritage makes it perfect for those looking for a more involving exploration of their holiday destination.

If you’re ready to begin your exploration take a look at our selection of holiday cottages in Ayrshire today.
