Find cottages in AyrVisit Ayr

Sitting on the lovely Ayrshire coast, at the mouth of the River Ayr, is the historical coastal town of Ayr. The town is steeped in history, with its roots going back to the 13th century, pre-dating the Magna Carta, Ayr is the oldest Royal Burgh in Scotland.

This popular seaside resort has a splendid esplanade with a long, sandy beach. From the beach, you can see out over the sea to the nearby Isle of Arran and on a very clear day you may even make out the northern tip of Northern Ireland. The long beach is perfect for relaxing walks and taking in the invigorating sea air.

As well as its fine beach, many shops and restaurants, Ayr is home to some beautiful 15th century buildings and landmarks, such as Louden Hall, the Tolbooth and the Auld Brig, which is now a pedestrian walkway. Although none of the 10th century Ayr Castle exists above ground, in 1654, Oliver Cromwell built a citadel on the castle site, the walls of which remain largely visible today.

Spend a day at Ayr Racecourse, one of Scotland's best known racecourses, it plays host to both National Hunt and flat racing and is sure to provide an adrenaline-fuelled day out. Explore the Ayr coastline and visit the coastal resorts of Troon and Prestwick.

However you choose to spend your days, Ayr has plenty to whet your appetite and if you are so inclined, you might want to spend your evenings whetting your palate with a local Ayrshire whiskey and perhaps raising a wee dram to Ayr's famous son, Robbie Burns who was born in nearby Alloway.

Hazelglen Ref: CC539028
Hazelglen is a spacious, comfortable holiday bungalow, offering warm, modern accommodation and is just the ticket for exploring Ayrshire. The property is set within a working livestock farm and has lovely views towards the Galloway Hills and beyond - these can be fully appreciated from the large conservatory. This is a great base; the seaside town of Ayr is a short drive and Glasgow can be reached in less than an hour. Ayr is the largest of the Clyde Coast holiday towns and looks out on the glorious panorama of the Firth, with the majestic peaks of Arran in the foreground and the Mull of Kintyre in the background. Ayr racecourse is home to the Scottish Grand National and hosts up to thirty race meetings a year. Ayrshire is home to some of the finest golf courses in Scotland, from testing championship links courses to scenic parks courses. Turnberry and Royal Troon are the most known golf courses in Ayrshire hosting the Open and Seniors Open. Old Prestwick is another world renowned links course as the first ever Open was played there when the tournament began in 1860. There are many other fine links courses in Ayrshire. Ayrshire is steeped in history with links to William Wallace, Robert the Bruce and Robert Burns. The beautiful Ayrshire countryside provided the inspiration for some of the finest verses of Robert Burns and his birthplace at Alloway now houses a museum dedicated to the bard. There are over forty castles throughout the country, some of which are open to the public. The finest without a doubt is Culzean, the jewel in the crown. Dumfries House is a georgian gem. Nestling within 2,000 acres of scenic Ayrshire countryside in south west Scotland, this beautiful Palladian mansion house has been described as an 18th century time capsule, with many of its principal rooms extremely well preserved and some of there exquisite contents virtually unchanged for nearly 250 years. The house remained unseen by the public since it was built until it opened its doors as a visitor attraction in June 2008. The four islands Ailsa Craig, Arran, Cumbrae, and the Holy Isle, are only a short distance off the Ayrshire coast. The Isle of Arran has the best of what the rest of Scotland has to offer. A beautiful coastline with pretty villages complemented by a rugged and mountainous interior in the north and green rolling hills and woodland in the south. Ailsa Craig is now a bird sanctuary with seasonal daily boat trips. Cumbrae is one of the smallest islands on the Firth of Clyde and is just a 10 minute ferry crossing from Largs. It’s a perfect destination for a day out. The Island boasts deserted beaches, sandy coves, a flat landscape, and the main town of Millport has lots to entertain the family. Cumbrae is a paradise for cyclists and the traditional way to explore is a hop on a bike and experience the very best of the island. Holy Isle has an ancient spiritual heritage stretching back to the 6th Century. The Ayrshire coast is about sixty five miles long from Ballantrae in the south to Largs in the north and has some fine beaches surprisingly devoid of people. Haste ye back.
