Ayrshire & Arran
The traditional holiday resort of Girvan, offering a variety of visitor attractions, is a good base for exploring the villages and countryside of the surrounding area. The traditional seaside resort of Girvan is situated on the Ayrshire coast, 56 miles south of Glasgow. The coastal scenery includes the island of Ailsa Craig, lying just offshore, while inland are lush green hills, with many walkers’ trails in Carrick Forest.
There are no fewer than 20 different castles in the local area. Some are mere ruins and others like Culzean are viewable in all their splendor. The world-famous golf links course, Turnberry, is a few miles up the coast.
