Home Link included

Monday

We depart and make our way to Ayr to
arrive at the Menzies Irvine 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

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!
