Easy to reach and even easier to explore, Ayrshire & Arran sits on the west coast of Scotland with its wonders of island life, countryside towns and sandy shores.

Islands

Just a short ferry ride across the Firth of Clyde and you can explore either Arran or Cumbrae, or even both! Experience perfect island life, which is full of tasty food and drink, exciting outdoor activities and beautiful views.

History

This is the region that gave us our National Bard, Robert Burns. Explore the great Burns attractions, take a wander around an ancient castle, or learn about the Vikings who once set foot on these very shores.

Food and drink

Both Ayrshire and Arran produce a range of tasty treats that you won't want to miss. Try the fresh seafood, caught daily off the shore, sit down to a main course of local lamb, beef or pork combined with Ayrshire 'tatties' or indulge your sweet tooth with ice cream, chocolate and more.
