My fiancé and I recently stayed for the weekend during The Open (golf tournament) and had a lovely time. It was the perfect accommodation for a couple or group looking for a quiet... More

Liz has a great guest house. Largest bedroom we've ever had in a UK B&B. Large, comfortable bed. Great breakfast. Perfect location walking the beach or explore castle ruins. She assisted us with local information and pointed us to some great restaurants. This is now our place to stay in Ayrshire.
