Days Out in Ayrshire
and South West Scotland
The list below is not exhaustive. Please ask if there is anything else you would like to see or do whilst you are here.
We are well placed for a variety of days trips to see some wonderful historic attractions such as Dumfries House, Burns National Heritage Park and Culzean Castle to name a few.
We can arrange spa treatments at a luxury spa, five minutes from the castle. Alternatively, we can arrange for you to have spa treatments in the comfort of your room.

South Ayrshire and Dumfries and Galloway offer a wealth of places to visit if you are interested in wildlife. There are RSPB wildlife reserves, Galloway Forest Park and the stunning South Ayrshire Coastal path.
