Fullarton Estate

Parks & Gardens

Fullarton, Troon, Ayrshire, KA10

    A peaceful retreat on the outskirts of Troon, Fullarton Estate offers space to get away from the hustle and bustle.

    Traditional Scottish deciduous woodland consisting of many large beech, oak and horse chestnut trees, offers home to much birdlife and some animal life, mainly small woodland mammals such as squirrels and rabbits.

    In February the woodland is carpeted with snowdrops and later the spring brings daffodils, bluebells and rhododendrons to provide beautiful colour. There is plenty of space to play ball games, as there are sports pitches as well as open lawn area.

    There are many paths throughout the estate, allowing walkers, cyclists and joggers to enjoy the tranquil surroundings. There is also a bridle path for horse riding.

    Crosbie Kirkyard lies to the south of Fullarton Estate. The church has been in ruins since the mid 18th century. Local tales claim that the roof blew off the day that Robert Burns was born on 25 January 1759.

    The Estate is free to visit and park within. The car park is well laid out and is adjacent to the toilets, the play park and several benches and picnic tables. The toilets are suitable for disabled use and have a parent nursing room.

    The park is within a few miles of Glasgow Prestwick International Airport, Burns Cottage, Culzean Castle, Dundonald Castle and Royal Troon Golf Course.
