The birthplace of Scotland’s most famous poet, Robert Burns, Ayr is an ideal destination for sightseers and sports fans alike.

Robert Burns' birthplace

Here, mile upon mile of waterside sits alongside championship golf courses. It includes two Open venues – the Old Course at Royal Troon and the Ailsa at Turnberry – which are renowned for their challenging courses and private hospitality. Sports fans will also enjoy the famous Ayr Racecourse, which hosts both the Scottish Grand National and the Ayr Gold Cup

Situated on the west coast of the Scottish Lowlands, it’s also home to long, sandy beaches. Dunure Beach is just 5 miles south of Ayr and a short drive from Culzean Castle, while Largs has the rather unusual feature of palm trees! If the weather turns sour, kids will love the LA Bowl, Lazerzone and ODEON cinema.
