Based in the popular seaside resort of Ayr, this tour combines exploration of the Ayrshire Coast with a spot of island hopping, also featured are Culzean Castle and Brodick Castle.

 

Highlights

 

Great Cumbrae   |   Millport   |   Troon   |   Culzean Castle   |   Isle of Arran   |   Brodick Castle

 

Day One

We depart from your home with our exclusive door to door pick-up service, join your coach and travel north with comfort stops enroute.  Arrive at your hotel late afternoon, time to relax before dinner.

 

Day Two

A scenic drive to the charming seaside resort of Largs for the short crossing to Great Cumbrae, a small and picturesque island only 10 miles round.  Stop in Millport before the return crossing to Largs.  This afternoon we will have time at leisure in Troon with its sandy beaches, beautiful views and bustling harbour before returning to our hotel.

 

Day Three

We head south this morning to Culzean Castle and Country Park, perched high above the Ayrshire cliffs.  A costumed guide will share the secrets of the castle, once home to the chieftan of Clan Kennedy, an ancient Scottish family descended from Robert the Bruce.  Return to Ayr for time at leisure.

 

Day Four

An early start today for our visit to the Isle of Arran, often described as ‘Scotland in Miniature’ beginning with a visit to Brodick Castle.  Dramatically set against the backdrop of Goatfell, the grand red sandstone, baronial-style castle has stunning views over Brodick Bay and boasts impressive gardens.  Spend time in Brodick before re-boarding the ferry back to the mainland and our hotel.

 

Day Five

This morning we must bid farewell to Scotland and begin our journey home with comfort stops enroute.
