Other attractions in Turnberry include the lighthouse which dates back to 1873, the remains of Turnberry Castle and Souter Johnnie’s Cottage. The famous Royal Troon Golf Club is a little further north along the coast (24 miles). Heading south, the delightful burgh of Girvan (5 miles) has plenty of great restaurants, shops and cafes, as well as the McKechnie Institute and Stumpy Tower – a museum occupying the site of a former prison. From Girvan, you can take a boat trip out to explore Ailsa Crag, which is the home of 40,000 gannets, or you can catch a ferry to the magical Isle of Arran. 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). The Ayrshire coastline offers miles of stunning walks, or you could head inland where there are beautiful woodland trails and country tracks to explore.

Absolutely outstanding property, beautiful views, well-equipped and helpful owner. We went for a week and had the best time. Everything about it was fantastic. The sunsets in the hot tub were perfect. The owners have thought of eveything internally, lots of hanging space, lots of kitchen utensils, comfy beds. It really was perfect.

Just back from a week at Pirleyhill pods. What a lovely relaxing location. Friendly welcome by the owner offering advice on the area and things to do or places to visit. Pod was clean and equipped with everything that you need for your stay. The hot tub is covered and a great way to chill out after a day out whatever the weather is doing.

If you want to get away from it all then this is the ideal setting. The view over to Ailsa Craig seems to change every day and there are plenty places to go for a walk if that is what you are after. Oh and don't forget, the locals are really friendly people. Would recommend Souters Inn and The Kirkmichael Arms for food only a short drive away.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
