Description

Situated in the scenic village of Colmonell with fantastic walking and cycling from the door, The Lodge is ideally located to explore the stunning Ayrshire coastline. For walkers of all abilities, the Ayrshire Coastal Path is close by and provides 100 miles of walking along 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.
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, as is Dumfries House, and both are well worth a visit. The islands of Arran and Cumbrae are easily accessed and make for a lovely day out while day trips to Ireland can be taken from Cairnryan. The seaside town of Girvan with harbour and leisure centre with swimming pool is only a 20-minute drive and boat trips can be taken out to Ailsa Craig to see the varied birdlife. Glasgow and Edinburgh are easily reached for a day out. Beach 5 miles. Shop and restaurant 5 miles, pub 500 yards.
The Lodge can be booked together with Riverview (CC539047) and Hillview (UK5349) to accommodate up to 6 guests.

Girvan down the coast has a deserved reputation for its floral displays which include Knockcushan Gardens, Orchard Gardens and Rose Gardens and is handy for the Carrick Forest which can be explored on foot or bike.

Scotland's national bard, Robert Burns was born on the outskirts of Ayr and visitors can make trips to his birthplace. The city is a popular seaside resort where you can catch the sea-going paddle steamer PS Waverley which cruises down the Firth of Clyde in the summer or maybe go racing at Ayr Racecourse all year round.

Sporting and recreational activities are high on the agenda in Ayrshire. Golf is a major attraction; in fact Ayrshire and Arran have over forty quality courses in total to choose from, including seven on the Isle of Arran. Of particular note are the championship courses of Turnberry, Troon and Old Prestwick.
