Scottish Beauty with holiday Homes in Ayrshire and Arran

The Scottish countryside is simply stunning and it can be somewhat a difficult choice as to where to head. Choosing Ayrshire and Arran holiday accommodation presents breath taking scenery, a rich, colourful history and top notch outdoor activities. Self catering holiday rentals in Ayrshire and Arran are the experience you want them to be – whether you want a blood pumping, adrenaline rushing outdoor adventure, a culture fest or a gourmet journey through Scotland’s finest fresh produce – just go for it!

Choice a cottage inland or on the Clyde coast or opt for a delightful hideaway on the picturesque Isle of Arran.

Get up and get out

The vast countryside is just begging to be explored. Adventures to be had from Ayrshire and Arran holiday homes are on foot or bike, up mountain, down glen. The mountains are imposing and somewhat fearsome – check the weather and be prepared but the views are stunning. Trek or cycle by day and then find yourself a welcoming hostelry to enjoy some fine local fare and a warming wee dram or two.

Scotland is the home of golf and many people choose Ayrshire holiday accommodation for the world class courses. Prestwick, Troon and Turnberry have all hosted the British Open Championship and present an excellent challenge. There are also plenty of other courses for those who might be somewhat intimidated by the famous greens.

Authentically Scottish

This area is ripe with Scottish culture. From holiday rentals in Ayrshire and Arran you can access a wealth of noble manors and regal castles that stand guard over the rugged landscape. Notable sites to visit include the castles at Culzean and Brodick. Also in the area is the Burns Museum – dedicated to one of the most famous Scotsmen ever, and also the Vikangar Viking Centre which reminds us of the oft bloody past of this part of the world. The main tourist information centre in Ayr can provide the lowdown on the best places to visit.

Forget what you’ve heard about deep fried mars bars and pizza. Provincial Scottish food is deliciously fresh and hearty. You find surprisingly good food in little pubs tucked in villages clinging to valley sides or in tiny fishing communities along the coast. Seafood in particular is the finest you’ll find in the UK, and discovering just what the menu means is all part of the fun. Eat cock-a-leekie, tatties and neeps, Cullen skink and cranachan, and of course the infamous haggis.

Arran

If you have chosen holiday accommodation in Arran, you will find yourself on a charming island nestled in the skirts of the Ayrshire coastline. Dramatic with imposing mountains, beautiful antique villages, forests and lovely wild beaches, Arran is the place for a quiet, relaxing break in serene surroundings. Slow means fast on Arran, so be prepared for a sedate pace on the island.

The Scottish Weather

We all know about the vagaries of the British weather, well in Scotland expect even more changeability. One minute you can be basking in glorious sunshine, the next enshrouded in mist as it rolls in off the sea, or down from the mountains. But don’t let that put you off, simply pack the right gear and you can still enjoy what there is to offer with Ayrshire and Arran holiday homes.

Getting here

Once you arrive in the UK, it’s a short flight up to Prestwick airport. Or, you can fly into Glasgow, hire a car and drive through the glorious Scottish countryside.
