About this location

The South Ayrshire region


Hillhouse is situated 2 miles from the Ayrshire seaside town of Troon. Troon is a one of the most desirable places to live in southwest Scotland and the town is host to world class golf courses, fine restaurants, bars, shops, yachts and great beaches. Outside of Troon there are rugged hills, historic houses, stunning rivers and the cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow to explore.

If you are a private group of friends or family looking to experience some truly world class golf courses, Hillhouse is the perfect place to stay for your golf tour in Scotland. We have 3 'Open Championship' courses on our doorstep including Royal Troon, Turnberry and Prestwick Golf Club. The latter is steeped in history and is the birthplace of championship golf, having hosted the first 24 Open Championships between 1860 & 1884. Turnberry last held 'The Open' in 2009. Royal Troon last hosted 'The Open' in 2004, and will host it again in 2016.

It is no secret that the Western Isles of Scotland offers some of the best sailing and most stunning scenery in the world. Hillhouse has Troon Marina on its doorstep, providing a gateway to an unforgettable sailing experience amongst the Western Isles. Whether you want to be powered at speed, cruised in luxury or blown by wind we will see that you are provided with the perfect boat and crew to suit your needs.

Ayr Racecourse is Scotland's premier racecourse. It is home to the Scottish Grand National and the Ayr Gold Cup which is the richest race held on Scottish soil. The racecourse has excellent bars, restaurants, champagne bars and entertainment to compliment your days racing.

Arran is one of the most accessible of the Scottish islands and one of the most southerly. The line between the Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland divides the island almost exactly in two and Arran mirrors the differing landscapes of the country more widely, forming a "Scotland in miniature". The north is ruggedly mountainous and sparsely populated, the south softer in landscape and home to the majority of the people who live here. Arran is easily accessible from Hillhouse and the island provides a range of activities to suit everyone for a memorable day trip.

Troon is host to some of the best kitesurfing and windsurfing beaches on the Scottish mainland. The water is warmed by the Gulf Stream effect, meaning it is possible to kite or windsurf at any time of year, however the months of April - October offer the best conditions.

There are numerous historic houses and sites in Ayrshire to visit; such as the birthplace of the great Scottish poet Robert Burns and Culzean Castle. But perhaps the most interesting is Dumfries House.

Dumfries House is an 18th century time capsule nestling in 2000 acres of countryside. With its exquisite contents, it has remained virtually unchanged for over 250 years. The House was saved from the auctioneer's hammer by HRH Prince Charles, The Prince of Wales. Designed by the renowned 18th century architect brothers, John, Robert and James Adam, Dumfries House was built between 1754 and 1759. The house holds the most important collection of works from Thomas Chippendale for the first time can be seen by the public. Hillhouse can organise a private tour of this stunning house for our guests. When you visit Dumfries house you will see why HRH Prince Charles, The Prince of Wales saved the house and its contents from the auctioneer's hammer.

I booked Hillhouse for a Christmas party weekend in December. Myself and the other guests had an amazing time. The house is much bigger than it appears in the photographs and for a big house it has a lovely warm and welcoming atmosphere - definitely a home from home! The bedrooms and bathrooms are seriously comfortable and spacious - there was no problem allocating rooms as they were all great. I do not know how Alison the housekeeper keeps the house so spotless - it looks as though it was refurbished yesterday! The reception rooms are stunning and make sure you try their bespoke catering service - quite expensive but utterly delicious food and the friendliest staff imaginable!

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review. We are delighted that you all had a good time and that you enjoyed the house. I will pass on your thanks to Alison (we are very lucky to have her!) and to Alice and the catering team. We very much hope to see you again at Hillhouse soon!
