Set amidst the hills of the Southern Upland of Scotland, the landscape at Craigengillan is breathtaking. Cavallus and Camusfearna pods (refs UK7795 and UK7796) are situated in peaceful parkland above a lily fringed lake. Close by, the River Doon flows from the romantic wooded gorge of Ness Glen. Enjoy over 70 miles of phenomenal off road walking, cycling or hacking, or just relax and enjoy the beauty of staying in a world renowned Dark Sky Park.
Explore miles of estate paths on foot or bike, or picnic by Dalcairnie Falls where in the spring and summer there are myriad wild flowers from early snowdrops, primroses and violets within the woods, to carpets of orchids, harebells, and meadowsweet later on. Day permits are available at a cost of £12 for trout fishing on over 2 miles of the River Doon and a 60-acre loch. Wildlife is in abundance with ospreys, red kites, rose deer, highland cattle and badgers. In the summer, dragonflies zoom over the meadows and ponds, and with the arrival of winter come chooper swans and other migrating birds. Stabling is available if you wish to bring your own horse, but please check with the stables before booking.
Ayrshire is also known as ’Burns’ Country’, and is steeped in tradition and history. Visit Burns Cottage, The Burns Memorial Museum and the Brig o’ Doon, the bridge from the famous poem ’Tam o’ Shanter’. The seaside towns of Prestwick and Troon are close by with beautiful sandy beaches and stunning views towards the Isle of Arran. Day trips can be taken to Arran and Cumbrae and are well worth the effort.
Ayrshire is home to the Ayrshire Coastal Path, a 100-mile long coastal walk with one of the finest panoramic coastlines in the British Isles. The area is steeped in history with many ruined castles to explore, such as Dunure, Turnberry and Greenan. A visit and tour of Culzean Castle, designed by Robert Adams and truly one of his masterpieces, is one not to be missed with its dramatic clifftop location. Also worth a visit is the 18th-century Dumfries House, part of the Princes Foundation which is home to an unrivalled collection of Chippendale furniture. The 2000-acre estate has been beautifully designed with stunning walks throughout the grounds.
