Introducing Ayrshire & Arran
Ayrshire is synonymous with golf and with Robert Burns – and there's plenty on offer here to satisfy both of these pursuits. Troon has six golf courses for starters, and there's enough Burns memorabilia in the region to satisfy even his most fanatic admirers.
This area's main drawcard, though, is the irresistible Isle of Arran. With a gourmet culinary scene, atmospheric watering holes, and the most varied and scenic countryside of the southern Hebridean islands, this easily accessible island shouldn't be missed.
The best way to appreciate the Ayrshire coastline is on foot: the Ayrshire Coastal Path offers 100 miles of spectacular waterside walking.
