LocationTurnberry

A very happy base for golfers, the village of Turnberry in Ayrshire is home to the iconic and famous Trump Turnberry Golf Resort. With a number of courses, including the Open Championship course, the resort offers luxury golf on its beautiful coastline setting. The beautiful coastal setting of the village offers a number of sites to explore, including the 19th Century Turnberry Lighthouse, built partially on the ruins of Turnberry Castle. The early history of the Castle is mostly unknown, but during its fractious past, it was home to the young Robert the Bruce. The granite island of Ailsa Craig provides lovely views and bird watching from pretty much anywhere along the coast.  

Ayrshire

Located on the west coast, Ayrshire offers a diversity of landscapes for the discerning traveller. The shores of the Firth of Clyde offer beaches and a range of watersports, and the rolling Galloway Hills to the south offer a haven for nature lovers and walkers. Ayrshire is historically a diverse industrial county, and most famous for its production of the worldwide favourite Scotch Whisky, Johnnie Walker, in the town of Kilmarnock. The namesake town of Ayr is a bustling seaside resort. With its long esplanade and sandy beach it is a popular tourist town. Further north along the coastline the town of Irvine is home to the main site of the Scottish Maritime Museum. Other places of interest in the county include the Ayr suburb of Alloway, birthplace of Scotland’s poet Robert Burns. Ayr Racecourse, which hosts the Scottish Grand National is a great day out. Turnberry Castle claims to be the possible birthplace of Robert the Bruce, and is an interesting historical attraction. Just a ferry trip across the Firth is the Isle of Arran. Boasting geologically diverse High and Lowlands the island has been inhabited since Neolithic times and has a range of attractions with mountain ranges, rolling countryside and sandy beaches, there is a range of things to do here. If you are a golfer, the area offers over 42 courses including three Open Championship links courses at Royal Troon, Prestwick and Turnberry.

Southern Scotland

Stretching across the border with England, and reaching up to the central belt from Glasgow to Edinburgh, the Southern Scotland region is a popular location for short break holidays. Although you may not find the monumental mountain ranges of the Highlands, don’t think that this region lacks the traditional Scottish landscapes. The famous 7Stanes mountain biking routes can be found across the Border counties and Dumfries and Galloway, as there is an abundance of hills, glens and forests to challenge even experienced bikers. The region has plenty of fishing opportunities too, most popular perhaps is the River Tweed, well known for its salmon, and miles of coastline, ideal for walking and bird spotting. Golf can be found in abundance in this area too. For gentler activities, visit the Four Borders Abbeys, magnificent tributes to the religious history of the area, at Kelso, Jedburgh, Dryburgh and Melrose.

29th August 2016 Great 

This property was excellent. The location was very good with views to Ailsa Craig and to the Campbeltown peninsular. There was plenty of space around the house with well tended but not precious gardens, the dogs were very happy with the grounds and with the walk to the beach. The accommodation on three split levels was very well appointed with good quality bedding and furnishings, The kitchen was well appointed and had ample cookware, tableware and glassware to cater for a party of twelve.
Girvan is a short car ride away, Ayr a very pleasant drive about 30mins, and there is a farm shop within easy walking distance. Highly recommended

Service rating : Many thanks for your feedback and we would be delighted to help with any future holiday plans.

21st April 2014 Excellent 

This was a last minute booking for a family of 10 and we could not have wished for a more perfect stay. The house is wonderful and beautifully furnished. Our personal welcome by the owner was wonderful and a friendship that will be maintained in years to come. The beds are extremely comfortable, the kitchen very well equiped and the whole house very well appointed. The roaring fire commands that you sit beside it for quality family times with a glass of wine. Beautiful local walks and fresh air fill the day time and the local farmer is more than happy to stop and chat. A holiday experience that the whole family will never forget. I look forward to staying at Ladybank in the future and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

Many thanks for your comments, we were delighted to be of assistance with your last minute trip!

So pleased you had a great time at the property in front of the cosy fire! We shall certainly pass your comments onto the owner and please don't hesitate to get back in touch with us in the future if you wish to re book.
