This spacious detached cottage is located on a quiet country lane, with views over open countryside and a river running to the rear. It is situated near the small village of Pinmore, close to the harbour town of Girvan, with restaurants, shops, pubs and leisure centre with swimming pool. Girvan has a lovely harbour with fishing trips and sight-seeing trips available. A trip out to Ailsa Craig is recommended to see the nesting birds. Close to the Ayrshire Coastal Path, a 100-mile long coastal walk with one of the finest panoramic coastlines in the British Isles. Crowned with a superb backdrop of the ever-changing profile of the mountains of Arran across the Firth of Clyde, this coastline is steeped in history and teeming with wildlife, including red squirrels, deer, otters and seals; it is also a haven for bird watchers. The River Ayr Way, a 40 mile source to sea walk is also easily accessed.
Inland, there are gardens and castles to visit and activities such as horse riding, racing, fishing and golf to enjoy. The many golf courses include the world famous Royal Troon and Turnberry courses both close to hand, with Turnberry also having a fantastic spa and outdoor centre. Culzean Castle (owned by the National Trust for Scotland) is spectacular and is Ayrshire’s most popular tourist attraction. The islands of Cumbrae, Arran and Bute are all easily reached for a day out, while day trips to Ireland can be taken from Cairnryan. The pretty towns of Troon, Prestwick and Ayr are only a short drive with very good rail links for a trip to the cosmopolitan city of Glasgow and also historic Edinburgh. Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park is just over an hour’s drive and is well worth a visit. Beach 7 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 7 miles.
