Description

This charming semi-detached cottage, situated in a quiet location on the owners’ working beef and sheep farm, offers stunning views over the hills beyond. Located in rural Ayrshire, the property provides a superb location for the outdoor enthusiast. The Galloway Forest Park is close by 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 and ancient woodland, as well as 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.

The seaside towns of Ayr, Prestwick and Troon are all close by with beautiful sandy beaches and stunning views towards the Isle of Arran. Day trips can be taken to Arran and Cumbrae, and are well worth the effort. Ayrshire is home 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, and is a haven for bird watchers. Fishing is available on the river across the road and two passes are provided for a small refundable deposit. More passes can be obtained on request.

Inland there are gardens and castles to visit, horse riding, racing and a choice of golf courses, with the world famous Turnberry close to hand. Culzean Castle, owned by the National Trust for Scotland, is spectacular and is Ayrshire’s most popular tourist attraction. Ayrshire is also known as ’Burns’ Country’ and is steeped in tradition and history. Visit Burns Cottage, Burns Monument and Memorial Gardens, and the Brig o’ Doon, the bridge from the famous poem ’Tam o’ Shanter’. Day trips to Ireland can be taken from Cairnryan, whilst Glasgow and Edinburgh are easily reached for a day out. Beach 24 miles. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 4 miles.
