As a destination in its own right, Turnberry Links Estates and its surrounding services are superb, with championship golf courses and the Westin Turnberry Hotel offering luxurious Spa and Health facilities alongside an Outdoor Activity Centre and other excellent facilities, you will discover the area has just as much to offer for all tastes and pursuits.

The coastline provides endless pastimes ranging from beach picnics to sea angling, from island hopping boat trips to watersports. The Ailsa Craig bird and seal colony is a short boat trip from the fishing village of Girvan. Further up the coast at Largs you can take the car ferry to the Isle of Arran and spend the day in ‘miniature Scotland’.

There are two excellent swimming pools within five miles of the apartments, at Maypole and Girvan. There are also plenty of opportunities for riding, with a number of local stables offering trekking, hacking and even beach riding on the beautiful Ayrshire coast.

Only 2 miles away through the village of Maidens, is Culzean Castle, one of Scotland’s oldest and most famous houses and ancestral home of the Marquess of Ailsa. The interiors have been beautifully restored and the estate also offers scenic walks through its Red Deer Park with attractions such as The Walled Garden, The Swan Pond and The Pagoda to enjoy.

Drive along the Carrick coast and you will encounter the Electric Brae, a gravity hill where cars appear to be drawn uphill by some mysterious attraction, and the dramatic ruins of Dunure Castle. Further along you will quickly come into the village of Alloway, birth place of one of Scotland’s favourite sons Robbie Burns. Here you can take in the Tam O’Shanter Experience, Brig O’Doon, The Burns Monument and The Burns Cottage. For those who have the energy left, Ayr town offers shopping, restaurants and nightlife to carry you through to the twilight hours.
