You could be excused for doing nothing but playing golf, but that would be to miss out on Ayrshire’s diverse range of après golf activities and attractions.
A wide range of visitor attractions spans the county and castles and historic trails abound with many famous sites of interest and ruins to be explored. There are also family attractions and outdoor sports facilities in abundance.
History and heritage loom large with a list including the splendid Culzean Castle, nearby Dundonald Castle and other country parks and castles at Kelburn and Dean. Robert Burns was born in nearby Alloway and wherever you travel in the county there are references to Scotland’s world-famous national bard.
Plan your visit to fit in with the sporting calendar and you could take in a race meeting at Ayr, Scotland’s premier racecourse.
Ayrshire is increasingly renowned for the quality of its dining using fresh local produce and creative cooking skills and offering a wide range of formal and informal locations in which to enjoy.
In recent years the quality of restaurants, a resurgence in the number of country inns and a move towards greater use of local produce, have all contributed to Ayrshire now being a haven of quality cuisine.
Equally impressive are some of the traditional pubs and designer bars. Whether you’re looking for a gantry full of malt whiskies, some real ale or live entertainment, you’ll usually find something going on around you.
Ayrshire, for sure, has a 19th Hole well worth playing!
