Girvan is situated on the Ayrshire coast, 56 miles south of Glasgow.
The coastal scenery includes the island of Ailsa Craig, lying just offshore, while inland are lush green hills, with many walkers' trails in Carrick Forest.
Girvan’s attractions include the Stumpy Tower, originally built as a prison and today displays fascinating historical exhibits. The McKechnie Institute is also found in Girvan’s town centre, as is a variety of restaurants, cafés and shops to enjoy.
There are no fewer than 20 different castles in the local area. Some are mere ruins and others like Culzean are viewable in all their splendour. The world-famous golf links course, Turnberry, is a few miles up the coast.
