Ayrshire & Arran is an ideal destination for those who enjoy horse riding. The leafy forest trails, wind-blown beaches and old bridle paths through the countryside make for an exhilarating day out. Many of the trails have stunning views and remember to keep a keen eye to spot some of the abundant local wildlife such as red deer, otters and golden eagles.
