Where should you visit this May and June?
Ayrshire is a region rich in Scottish history, where historic castles and tower-houses, some in ruins, some preserved, remain throughout the countryside.
The region is renowned for the quality of its food and many local restaurants reflect this. With an abundance of delicious fresh fish and seafood, top quality beef and mouth-watering Ayrshire potatoes or ‘tatties’ as they are known, you will find excellent food wherever you go.
Highlights include the numerous beautiful beaches, Culzean Castle and a visit to Burns Cottage in Alloway, birthplace of Scotland’s favourite son, Robert Burns.
