This collection of holiday cottages in Ayrshire are settled on the south-west coast of Scotland. A refreshing escape, home to sweeping countryside, sandy beaches, and coastal paths to soak in the splendid sights, self-catering in Ayrshire is idyllic for solo travellers, couples or families looking to enjoy a rural retreat in Scotland.

Why Ayrshire?

Ayrshire, the birthplace of Robert Burns and the home of rolling green hills, makes a superb base for cyclists, avid walkers, golfers, and those who enjoy sight-seeing. Test your stamina with an uphill trek, delve into deep, dark woods or visit cascading waterfalls to see Scotland's gems. Lodges in Ayrshire are great for a coastal escape, where the little ones can let off steam on the fine, sandy beaches and paddle in crystal clear waters. Hop aboard the Waverly, a magnificent old paddle steamer and enjoy a leisurely cruise. Love sailing? The Firth of Clyde is naturally sheltered and offers wonderful conditions - and there are three outstanding marinas at Largs, Ardrossan and Troon. For more inspiration, visit the Scotland travel guide.

Here you can explore leafy suburbs and enjoy quaint strolls along the seafront with an ice cream. Jump in the car or hop on a train to the city of Glasgow, where you soak in the vibrant atmosphere at George Square and study the marvellous Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.
