    1d_gburn_01_400 Culzean castle dates from the late 18th Century – a peaceful time in Scottish history so it is less a castle and more like a great country house with fine furniture and beautiful architecture. Sat on the cliffs looking out over the Firth of Clyde the views are superb and the gardens are beautiful.
  • Culzean
    For those who like walking there are miles of tracks and footpaths through the grounds – taking in the Swan Pond, deer park, and walled gardens as well as rocky coves and sandy beaches. This will also be your lunch stop.
  • The Town of Ayr
    1d_gburn_03_400 After lunch you will follow the coastline to the tiny fishing village of Dunure with its ancient ruined castle and dark history. Continuing on, the road leads down into the outskirts of the market town of Ayr. This is the countryside of Robert Burn’s, Scotland’s national poet.
