Description

This well presented semi-detached villa is only a short stroll from the sandy beaches of Barassie and Troon. Popular with golfers, the villa is near to the several courses available in Troon, including the famous Royal Troon Golf Club, with one of the greatest links courses in Scotland, and host to the 2016 Open Championship. Also popular with walkers, the villa is situated minutes away from the Ayrshire Coastal Path, Scotland’s newest long distance walking route, 100 miles along one of the finest panoramic coastlines in the British Isles.
The seaside town of Troon is easily reached, with a fine mix of eclectic shops and eateries, promenade and marina. The coastal towns of Ayr and Prestwick are close by. Ayrshire offers unspoilt scenery and a varying coastline with villages, sandy beaches and rocky coves to explore, whilst inland there are gardens and castles to visit, riding, racing and a choice of golf courses. Culzean Castle (owned by the National Trust for Scotland) is spectacular and is Ayrshire’s most popular tourist attraction. The surrounding country park (extending over 550 acres) has a network of wooded trails passing along the beach. Craft shows, country dancing and walks spotting fungi are attractions hosted during the year.
Day trips to Ireland can be taken from Cairnryan. The bustling cosmopolitan city of Glasgow is only a 30-minute drive and Edinburgh an hour, with good train links from Prestwick. Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park is only 45 minutes away and the ferry links to the islands of Cumbrae, Bute and Arran are all close by. Beach ¾ mile. Shop 250 yards, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
