Ayrshire is home to the Ayrshire Coastal Path, a 100 mile long coastal walk, with 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. This location is also an idyllic haven for bird watchers. Inland, there are gardens and castles to visit, with activities such as riding, racing and golf to enjoy. Culzean Castle, which is owned by the National Trust for Scotland, is spectacular and is Ayrshire’s most popular tourist attraction. A short drive leads to Ayr, which is a traditional seaside town. 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. Beach 6 miles. Shop 400 yards, pub and restaurant 2 miles.
