Irvine

This forward-looking, modern town was redeveloped in the 20th century but hides a fascinating history and a range of historical attractions as well as newer charms for visitors to enjoy. Irvine was once known as the capital of Scotland and this history can be seen through sites like Dundonald Castle and Culzean Castle, as well as museums. Robert Burns was once a resident of the town and his legacy can be seen today, especially in the museum dedicated to his life. Enjoy the scenery of this coastal location and explore the harbour and its wonderful seascapes or play a round of golf on one of the world famous golf courses in Ayrshire.

We love Irvine because...

  • Wonderful seascapes

Scottish Maritime Museum

Set on the shore of Irvine, this museum includes an excellent range of exhibits and artefacts detailing the story of Scots at sea. From a Viking Fourareen built from driftwood, to a boat built by Glaswegian teenagers as well as the many historical boats housed here. Guests can also try out the interactive exhibits and learn to sail in the indoor and outdoor ponds. The building itself is an 18th century shipyard and has a glass roof, allowing for a grand sight.

Dundonald Castle

This iconic castle dates back to the 14th century and over many centuries it ran into ruin and disrepair, before being renovated and opened to the public. Guests often enjoy the stunning views over the Forth of Clyde. The interior is gloomy and atmospheric, with halls and dungeons for visitors to explore. History buffs can learn all about the history of the building and the local area in the visitor centre. There are also a number of walks around the surrounding area, which give some fantastic views of the castle.

Dundonald Links

This modern links course is modelled upon traditional and classic courses and offers up a challenging and yet enjoyable game for both veterans and begginers.

At 7,100 yards, the course has hosted a number of prestigious tournaments and has won many awards due to its environmental sustainability.
