Description

This traditional stone built cottage situated in the coastal village of Maidens lies only yards from the beautiful sandy beach and has the most amazing views from most rooms over towards the Isle of Arran. Guests can follow the beach walk up into Culzean Castle estate with woodland walks through the grounds. The seaside town of Girvan with shops, leisure centre and swimming pool, is only a 5-minute drive away and boat trips can be taken to Ailsa Craig for bird watching. Ayr, Prestwick and Troon are all close by with beautiful sandy beaches and the islands of Arran and Cumbrae and easily reached by ferry and well worth the effort.

Ayrshire, also known as ’Burns Country’, is steeped in tradition and history. Visit Burns Cottage, the Burns Memorial Museum and the Brig o’ Doon, the bridge from the famous poem, Tam o’ Shanter. Inland, the Galloway Forest Park is a short drive away and is Britain’s largest forest park with 300 square miles of wild beauty waiting to be explored. The park boasts tranquil valleys, rugged rock faces, forest, moorland, lochs, ancient woodland and a huge diversity of wildlife including red and roe deer, wild goats and many birds of prey. The park has also been awarded the status of one of only four Dark Sky Parks in the western world and when the sun sets, enthusiasts come to wonder at the universe revealed above. Dalmellington is home to the Scottish Dark Observatory and is only a short drive from the property. Day trips to Ireland can be taken by ferry from Cairnryan.
