This coastal apartment is situated at the harbour’s edge in the pretty village of Dunure. It offers two beautifully presented bedrooms, both served by the family shower room and both with harbour views. The stunning living room has a lovely wood burner, perfect for snuggling up in front off after a day exploring. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to cook a great evening meal or a great breakfast to fuel your day of exploration.
The village has stunning views over to the island of Arran, Ailsa Craig and views right down the coast to Culzean Castle and Turnberry Lighthouse. The sunsets here are some of the best on the west coast of Scotland. Situated on the Ayrshire coastal path, this coastline is steeped in history and teeming with wildlife, including red squirrels, deer, otters and seals, and is a haven for bird watchers. You can walk along the coast and directly into the Culzean Castle Estate and onto the village of Maidens, where you can stop for a coffee before continuing onto Turnberry Lighthouse for a spot of lunch. The world famous Turnberry golf course is only a 10-minute drive where you can enjoy a round of golf, fine dining or indulge in a luxury spa.
The town of Girvan is just a short drive away and boat trips can be taken out to Ailsa Craig to watch the nesting birds or for fishing trips. The town also has shops and a leisure centre with swimming pool. Ayrshire is also known as ’Burns’ Country’, here you can visit Burns Cottage, The Burns Memorial Museum and the Brig o’ Doon, the bridge from the famous poem Tam o’ Shanter. The area has many ruined castles to explore, such as Dunure, Turnberry and Greenan. A visit and tour to Culzean Castle, designed by Robert Adams and truly one of his masterpieces, is one not to be missed with its dramatic clifftop location. Also worth a visit is the 18th-century Dumfries House, part of the Prince’s Foundation, which is home to an unrivalled collection of Chippendale furniture. The 2000-acre estate has been beautifully designed with stunning walks throughout the grounds.
The Galloway Forest Park is only a 30-minute drive away and is Britain’s largest forest park with 300 square miles of wild beauty waiting to be explored. The park boasts tranquil valleys, rugged rock faces, forest, moorland, lochs and ancient woodland and a huge diversity of wildlife. The park has also been awarded the status of one of only four dark sky parks in the western world and when the sun sets enthusiasts come to wonder at the universe revealed above.
The pretty seaside towns of Ayr, Prestwick and Troon are also close by and day trips to the islands of Cumbrae, Arran and Bute are all easily reached. Day trips to Ireland can also be taken from Cairnryan. Beach 100 yards.
The Harbour Nook can be booked together with Harbour View (UK44111) and The Beach House (CC539043) to accommodate up to 14 guests.
