The Central Scotland/Strathclyde region

The west coast of Scotland offers a vast array of attractions for all interests. Most stunning are the landscapes and history.

Blossom Cottage is in the heart of 'Burns Country', the Bard of Ayrshire. It was in Maybole that the parents of Robert Burns met, courted and married and therefore the old town can claim a connection with him.

Maybole, a small market town situated 9 miles south of Ayr, is the ancient capital of Carrick. Its long history is evidenced from the many fine buildings on view. High Street is especially striking, running from the imposing town hall, built in 1887, to the equally impressive and much more unexpected Maybole Castle, believed to be the towns oldest inhabited house.

Many of Maybole's collection of remarkable buildings are found along Cassillis Street, a little north-east from the town centre.

On the southern outskirts of Maybole on the A77 lies Crossraguel Abbey founded by Duncan McDowall, 1st Earl of Carrick, in 1244 for the Cluniac Monks of Paisley Abbey. The well preserved medieval remains include the church, cloister, chapter house and much of the domestic quarters.


There are many places of interest about Maybole. These include Crossraguel Abbey, Culzean Castle, Turnberry Lighthouse, Ailsa Craig, Turnberry Hotel, Baltersan Castle, Dunure Castle and many, many more. As you can see CASTLES are a common feature!

Ayrshire boasts a large number of annual events ensuring there is something to do all year round whenever you decide to visit.
