This part of the Ayrshire coast is peppered with historic castles, including Dundonald, Dean, Blairquhan, Kelburn, Dalquharran and Portencross – the nearest being the magnificent 18th-century cliff-top Culzean Castle and Country Park (7 miles).

Excellent hosts and very accommodating. Cabin well equipped and we were surprised to find fresh milk and a bottle of prosecco in the good sized fridge. Peaceful location and stunning views of the Ailsa Craig. I was impressed by the greenery and surprisingly quiet for a working farm. Good clean double bed and a great TV if you don't want to miss youRead morer favourite shows, all streaming platforms available. I had texted a friend and said the quiet was almost audible as it was so peaceful. Fantastic. Hide
