Ayrshire is the birthplace of Robert Burns, Scotland’s national poet, and there are many fascinating historical places to visit, such as Culzean, Kelburn, Dean and Brodick Castles.
For outdoor activities there is walking, fishing and cycling including the 7 Stanes and Stargazing in Galloway Forest Park, and some of the finest golf courses in the world including Turnberry, Royal Troon and Prestwick, superior accommodation and gourmet dining.
