Scotland may not spring to mind as a seaside holiday destination, but rent a cottage in Ayr and you'll be glad it did.

Ayr is a popular seaside resort on Ayrshire's stunning southern coast. Home to a charming seafront complete with esplanade and sandy beach, this wonderful town deserves to be at the top of your coastal holiday hitlist.

If you've been searching for an alternate seaside destination for your next holiday, a cottage in Ayr ticks all the right boxes. Coupled with its beachfront amenities, the town is home to everything a family could want from a coastal resort, including an array of restaurants, cafés and shops.

Escape to Ayr with a self-catering holiday cottage

There's lots to see and do on an Ayr cottage break too. The town is famed as the birthplace of poet and all-round Scotch treasure Robert Burns, and the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum pays a fitting tribute to the renowned poet. The Burns Monument and Gardens are also well worth a visit, providing the perfect spot for a picnic on a sunny summer's day.

Other attractions to look out during your trip to Ayr include the Ayr Seafront Playpark, Rozelle Park, Ayr Gaiety Theatre, Loudon Hall and the Scottish Industrial Railway Centre.

Go beyond Ayr's limits on your cottage break, and look forward to superb scenery and great opportunities for walking. Ayrshire is renowned for its wild landscapes, as well as its historic attractions like Auchenharvie Castle, Corsehill and the Laigh Milton Viaduct, so it's a great place to escape Ayr's hustle and bustle.
