Ayrshire is a historic county and registration county in south-west Scotland, located on the shores of the Firth of Clyde, this is the region that gave Scotland’s National Bard, Robert Burns. Many explore the great Burns attractions, take a wander around the ancient castle, or learn about the Vikings who once set foot on these very shores.
Ayrshire also produces a range of tasty treats that you won't want to miss. Try the fresh seafood, caught daily off the shore, sit down to the main course of local lamb, beef or pork combined with Ayrshire 'tatties' or indulge your sweet tooth with ice cream, chocolate and more.
With three Open Championship venues, five of the UK's top 100 golf courses and golf passes, it's easy to see why this is one of Scotland's top regions for golf. Its principal towns include Ayr, Kilmarnock, and Irvine. Glasgow Prestwick International Airport, serving Glasgow and the West of Scotland more generally, is located more than 30 miles away from Glasgow in Ayrshire.
