Straiton is in the heart of South Ayrshire; a region fringed by a beautiful coastline and containing numerous romantic castles and superb countryside just waiting to be explored. The outline of Craigengower (the hill of the Goats in Gaelic) forms a backdrop to the village and on the skyline stands the obelisk erected to the memory of Lt Col James Hunter Blair, killed at the battle of Inkerman in 1854. There is a lot to do in Straiton without the need for a car; walking cycling and fishing are on the doorstep and there are plenty of facilities within a short stroll. Several walks start from the village. Fishing is available from mid March to the end of October on a stretch of the River Girvan and there are numerous cycle trails in the Galloway Forest. On a clear night the Galloway Forest Park - officially recognised as one of the few places left in the world where it is possible to view the night sky unimpeded - reveals the shimmering spectacle of thousands upon thousands of glistening stars; truly one of the wonders of the world! The highly acclaimed 7Stanes cycling venue at Glentrool offers superb mountain biking thrills. A little further afield are several excellent world class golf courses including Turnberry and Troon, horse riding, Burns National Heritage Park, Ayr Racecourse and amazing castles such as Culzean, known locally as the jewel in the crown. The acclaimed Dumfries House has only been open to the public since June 2008 and is a fascinating snapshot of decor dating back almost 250 years and includes a unique collection of Chippendale furniture. Loch Doon is a beautiful place to enjoy a walk, have a picnic, do some fishing, explore the castle or relax and read a book. If you return via the magical forest road it is a wonderful circular trip. For a truly memorable day out, step aboard the Waverley, the last seagoing paddle steamer in the World and see Holy Isle and Ailsa Craig.
