Average B and B experience, breakfast was better than average. Hostess was helpful and gracious. Great central location close to amenities and attractions. We would probably come here again if we we traveling in this area.

Recently stayed for a 4 day break. Lovely warm welcome from Jackie. Both rooms were first class, comfortable spotlessly clean and had everything required. The choice for breakfast was amazing and the hearty cooked breakfast was delicious. Had a great stay and would highly recommend to anyone. Thanks Jackie and Billy and hope to see you again!

A great location, wonderful host and sensational breakfast - despite my best endeavours I haven't been able to make poached eggs anywhere near as well since I returned home. The newly renovated bathroom was probably the best we encountered during... More

My husband, mother and I took a farmily room at Turas-Mara for the last leg of our trip to Scotland.

I was one of Jackie's first guests when she opened Turas-Mara (about 10 years ago) & I have been back every year since then for an annual visit to Ayr in connection with the paddle sreamer Waverley. Some years my sister & elder daughter have accompanied me ( both love the place). It is surely one of the best B... More

We had a very comfortable stay at Turas Mara and were mde to feel very wecome by Jackie on arrival. The room was well equipped, light and airy, very homely and very clean. The homemade pancakes for breakfast were superb and the location in Ayr was perfect too. Would definitely stay again.
