Explore the beautiful north Ayrshire coast from your cottage in Skelmorlie. This typical Scottish village offers a taste of remote country living in the midst of exceptional natural beauty; from the sheltered coastline and dense woodland to rugged peaks, this area provides world class adventure activities and breathtaking, high altitude wildlife.
Enjoy the wide selection of high quality local produce in the village and visit the farm shops and farmer’s markets within the area.
Close by there’s plenty of outdoor pursuits available both on land and on the sea. Bridleways crisscross the heaths and glens or take the Ayrshire coastal path (which starts/ terminates in Skelmorlie) by foot or by bike. Skelmorlie is set apart from Wemyss Bay by the Kelly Burn flowing through to the Firth of Clyde. This is a seafaring hub and offers a range of water-based activities, not to mention the famous marinas and yachting of nearby Largs.
Ayrshire has nurtured a number of Scottish icons and has a curious array of mystical castles and standing stones. William Wallace withdrew to Ayrshire for the last years of his life and the legendary Scottish Bard Robert Burns is paid tribute to in the Burns Birthplace Museum, just south of Ayr.
Staying in Skelmorlie holiday cottages offers the ideal accommodation from which to explore the region.
