In and around Ayr
Burns National Heritage Park
This park brings the cottage where Burns lived together with a modern museum focused on the poet’s life and work, together with a range of other attractions. The cottage has been restored to resemble the 1757 humble home that Burns grew up in. The museum features a range of relics and personal items from the life of Robert Burns, and guests can take a guided tour – operated by passionate guides who can explain each artefact in detail.
Culzean Castle & Country Park
This beautiful country park is spread over 260 hectares once belonging to the 10th Earl of Cassillis, David Kennedy, who was known for his extravagance – as we can see from this impressive 4 star Visit Scotland attraction. Landscaped with mature conifer beech trees. The park features a sandy coastline, swan pond an ice house, green houses full of fruit and beautifully formal gardens. Among all this, of course is the castle itself, which is set high on the cliffs. Designed by Robert Adam in the 1700’s, the castle is filled with treasures which tell the fascinating story of the people who used to live.
Take a guided tour or make your own way around the house and grounds - a great attraction for the family. Take a walk through the adjoining paths which lead you to all the different buildings within the Dumfries House Estate, see the 500-tree arboretum and wander around the stunning five acre walled garden. The children will also love the adventure playground! The landscape is forever evolving with remarkable gardens, follies and sculptures to discover. The on-site Coach House Café is a great place for a rest in between all of your new learnings and encounters.
