With such a rich cultural heritage, there are many attractions and places to visit in and around Ayrshire and Arran.
Certainly a nostalgic trip to Largs for fish and chips, ice cream from Nardini's or explore the fantastic yachting marina is worth it on a sunny day. Of course, a trip to Ayrshire would not be complete without visiting the trail of Rabbie Burns. The Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Ayr is a great place to find everything there is to know about our National Bard. Take in a visit to Burns Cottage in Alloway and see where this most famous son of Scotland was born.
A great place for kids is the Dean Castle Country Place in Kilmarnock, where you will discover the home of the Boyds and their connections to Robert the Bruce and the Scottish Wars of Independence. Little ones will love the adventure playground and the urban farmer.
Then there is the Isle of Arran, described as 'Scotland in Miniature' with many adverture activities such as kayaking, horse riding and of course climbing Goat Fell! More golfing options are available and why not indulge in some retail therapy at Arran Arromatics after spending the day at the various beauty spots on the island.
