Taking the time to visit Ayrshire, one of Scotland’s most interesting historically important regional areas, will prove rewarding. Not only is the western coast famed for its beauty, but the natural surrounds are made up of a gentle landscape that is punctuated by forests, castles and seaside towns.
See and Stay in Ayr
One of the most famous of these seaside towns, is Ayr. Within close proximity of Glasgow, this community has long lured city dwellers to stroll along its esplanade, where you can explore the beach front that looks out onto the Firth of Clyde, and further onto the Isle of Arran.
Tour the Auld Kirk
Huddled against the banks of the River Ayr, is the Auld Kirk of the town, built in the 12th Century and then almost entirely demolished by Cromwell, the newer parts of the church where constructed in the 1600s. Local historians suggest the famous poet Robert Burns was baptised in the Auld Kirk, and many of his poems reference parts of the old town of Ayr.
