Home Link included

Monday

We depart and make our way to Irvine to
arrive at the Menzies Hotel with time for a walk
along the promenade and sea front before
dinner.

Tuesday

After a hearty Scottish breakfast, we
set off to catch the ferry at Ardrossan for our
day trip to the Isle of Arran. Often called
“Scotland in Miniature”, Arran has everything to
offer from the rugged and dramatic mountains
and glens of Goatfell, to the sandy beaches of
Lamlash Bay overlooking the Holy Isle. We
return to Brodick mid afternoon for our ferry
back to Ardrossan and the mainland.

Wednesday

A different island trip today - to the
Isle of Bute. We travel up the attractive Clyde
Coast past the bustling town of Largs before
reaching Weymss Bay where we board the
short ferry over to the attractive island capital
of Rothesay. A short panoramic tour of this
fascinating island which is divided in two by the
Highland Boundary Fault line. Our next stop is
the astounding Victorian Gothic mansion of
Mount Stuart House and its magnificent
gardens which outclass most castle visits. We
round off our visit with delightful afternoon tea
in the new Visitor Centre. A day to remember!

Thursday

A quieter day today with a half day to
visit the sites of the local area: a drive along the
coast road to the “Electric Brae” where downhill
seems to be uphill! Castles dot the landscape
with the highlight being splendid Culzean
Castle, then onto Turnberry with its famous,
landmark lighthouse on the Championship Golf
Course. We return to Ayr and the hotel for the
afternoon with some free time for shopping in
the town centre.

Friday

Time to bid farewell to our seaside home
and set the compass south for our homeward
journey. Haste Ye Back!
