The closest beach is just a 300 metre stroll from the park, and there are many more coastal coves and stretches of sand to find nearby. Every beach has its own personality, with settings for wildlife watching, rockpooling, and watersports among the spots to discover.
Ayr is home to Burns National Heritage Park, which tells the story of Scotland’s most famous bard. A fascinating museum, his early cottage home, and places from his poems, such as Brig a’ Doon medieval bridge, help bring Robbie Burns’ legend to life. A few minutes along the coast is Culzean Castle, one of Scotland’s best loved and most impressively maintained castles. The walled gardens, deer park, swan pond, adventure playground and ranger walks to entertain all ages.
Ayrshire is a great spot for a variety of activity breaks, with fabulous walks and bike trails, wonderful fishing opportunities, and many great quality activity providers in the area. Scotland’s west coast is dramatic and beautiful, making it popular for climbing, mountaineering, road cycling, mountain biking and even horseriding.
The world-famous Turnberry Golf Club is a draw to the keenest golfers, but there are plenty of less prestigious courses across the region that offer more affordable but equally enjoyable rounds!
