The Marine Hotel, Crosbie Road, Troon, Ayrshire
Four-Star Hotel, Adjacent to Royal Troon Golf Club
Located on the beautiful Ayrshire coastline on the outskirts of Troon, the four-star Marine Hotel was built in 1894 and offers stunning views over Royal Troon Golf Club and across to the Isle of Arran. The hotel has recently been refurbished and guests can choose from five room types but such are the impressive views, we would highly recommend that you choose a room with a view over the golf course. The hotel offers a relaxed atmosphere in comfortable surroundings and guests can choose to dine at the 1897 Brasserie or opt for a more casual meal in the Arran Bar, which boasts stunning coastline views and a great selection of Craft Beer and Arran Whisky.
Scotland - Ayrshire & Southwest
Great golf is only part of the story when considering what makes the perfect golf trip. Thankfully, the other essential component parts are all found in abundance in Scotland, not least in the sights to see department. Whether scheduling a day off from golf or filling an afternoon after your morning round, there are many options regardless of which region you are visiting. The below is intended as a very general guide to sightseeing in the Ayrshire region.
Playing golf in Ayrshire is likely to see you staying no further south than Turnberry, from where some of the nearby attractions include the impressive ruins of Caerlaverock Castle near Dumfries and Dundrennan Abbey near Kirkcudbright. Only ten minutes from Turnberry is Culzean Castle & Country Park (above) and this is well worth a visit when travelling to or from Turnberry.
And while you are likely to be far too busy playing great golf courses like Turnberry, Royal Troon, Prestwick and Western Gailes, other attractions north of Turnberry in the Troon area include Dundonald Castle & Visitor Centre in Dundonald Village, Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Alloway, Souter Johnnies Cottage in Kirkoswald and Dean Castle Country Park in Kilmarnock.
You may not actually stay in Glasgow during your trip but there are plenty of sightseeing options including a visit to 13th century Bothwell Castle about ten miles southeast of Glasgow and the Falls of Clyde Wildlife Reserve. The many museums in or near Glasgow include the impressive Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and the National Museum of Rural Life in East Kilbride, which provides an insight into rural life in Scotland in times past. If you are looking for a distillery in the area, Glengoyne Distillery, about 14 miles north of Glasgow is an excellent option.
