    Burnside was a finalist in both 2010 and 2011 Friendliest B&B Eviivo Awards and now awarded Certificate of Excellence for 2012 by Tripadvisor.

    It is only a 20 min drive from Prestwick International airport and easily accessible from both Glasgow or the south via the A77 or the A70.

    Ayr is famous for being the birthplace of Robert Burns and the Burns Cottage and museum is a popular tourist attraction. Culzean Castle, owned by the National Trust for Scotland, is only a 20 minute drive down the beautiful Ayrshire coastline.
    Ayrshire also hosts over 30 golf courses, including the famous Open Championship courses Turnberry, Old Prestwick and Royal Troon and quality municipal courses such as Belleisle. As a member of the South Ayrshire Hoteliers Golf Association special course fees are available for playing at the local municipal golf courses.

    Other attractions include Ayr Racecourse, the Gaiety Theatre, Heads of Ayr Farm Park, Cycle Routes, Walks at Auchincruive, the River Ayr Way and the Ayrshire Coastal Path. Public parks include Rozelle and Belleisle. Ayr seafront has amenities for old and young alike: an exciting play area for children, crazy golf and putting. Or else you can just enjoy a leisurely walk along the esplanade or the wide sandy beach and watch the breathtaking sunsets over Arran.

    If you are planning a trip to Ayr why not stop over for a few days, there is plenty to do and see for all ages. I shall look forward to extending a warm welcome to all those visiting the Burnside Guest House.
