Castlehill (sleeps 10) is a recently refurbished house overlooking the river on a quiet lane at the edge of the west coast seaside village of Ballantrae in South Ayrshire.
Castlehill is situated along a quiet country lane, within quarter of a mile from the sea, backed by farm land and looking South over the River Stinchar to the surrounding South Ayrshire countryside and Galloway Hills beyond. With marked river, woodland, seaside and farm walks direct from the door, the properties are all situated just off the Ayrshire Coastal Path, www.ayrshirecoastalpath.org -Scotland’s long distance walking route along one of the finest panoramic coastlines in the British Isles. The coastline is crowned with a superb backdrop of the ever-changing profile of Ailsa Craig and the mountains of Arran across the Firth of Clyde. The area is steeped in history and teeming with wildlife, including red squirrels, roe deer, otters and seals and is a haven for bird watchers on the moors and estuary.
Originally built in the late 1930s when Ballantrae was a thriving holiday village Castlehill has been recently modernised to an incredibly high standard, it retains some of the thirties architectural features and has some simply stunning sea and river views.
