About the neighbourhood
Girvan is an ideal spot for a wonderful vacation. You have the best of both worlds staying at our luxury Ailsa House with the beach steps away and shops and restaurants steps the other way! There are many day-trips to enjoy including Culzean Castle and Turnberry Golf Club and Spa are nearby.
Girvan is situated on the beautiful west coast of Scotland, midway from Glasgow to Cairnryan.
Glasgow is the 'jumping off spot' for many tours you can take to the highlands. While in the picturesque town of Cairnryan you can take the ferry to Ireland and enjoy historical Belfast. All this and be back at Ailsa House for dinner.
Getting around
You can virtually walk to everything in the town. The train station is about a 7 minute walk from Ailsa House and the trains can take you anywhere in Scotland in pretty short order.
Buses to Ayr leave every half hour during the day until 11pm at night.
Taxi's are also available to go to Turnberry or anywhere of your choice. The phone #'s are all in the house in the 'Important Numbers' binder for guests.
