    New for summer 2019 is a fully refurbished summer house, for use of both properties. Located close to the quiet village of Sorn with easy access to the River Ayr Way, with over 40 miles of walks through one of the most interesting valleys in southern Scotland with a wide range of habitats and wildlife. Dumfries House, made famous by Prince Charles’ involvement, is located approximately 3 miles away, and is a major attraction in East Ayrshire, as is Auchinleck House, home to James Boswell, a similar distance away. Also close by is the wonderful Ayrshire Coastal Path, with over 100 miles along one of the finest panoramic coastlines. Inland, there are gardens and castles to visit, riding, racing, a choice of golf courses and several country parks, with Culzean Castle, 45 minutes away, (owned by the National Trust for Scotland) and being Ayrshire’s most popular tourist attraction, with a network of wooded trails passing along the beach. Day trips to Ireland can be taken from Cairnryan. The bustling cosmopolitan city of Glasgow is only a 45-minute drive and Edinburgh is 1½ hours, with good train links from Prestwick. Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park is approximately 1¼ hours away and the ferry links to the islands of Cumbrae, Bute and Arran are all close by. Visitors are welcome all year round, and during January and February, you can enjoy the snowdrops, snow, frost and crisp sunshine. From the 1st April to the 15th June, this is the time for the most reliable weather, with the spring bluebells, birdsong and the ornate gardens. September to November brings the autumn colour which is exceptional due to the prominence of the native beech trees. Beach 15 miles. Shop within 2 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
    Gilmilnscroft Gatehouse (UK5164) and The Old Stables (UK5695) can be booked together to accommodate up to 8 guests.

    Adrian was a great host, warmly welcoming us and explaining the gatehouse and gardens, as well as giving information on local sights. Having the grounds of the main house to walk was a real bonus, and the location was ideal for us. Despite being by a road, we didn't have any issues with noise from passing traffic. The gatehouse had everything we needed, and was only a few miles from supermarkets. Where we felt the property could be improved was in the areas of general cleanliness, such as the bathroom floor and the eiderdown. These took the edge off the property, and would not be acceptable to everyone, but they didn't prevent us from enjoying our stay at Gilminscroft Gatehouse.

    A comfortable and pleasant place to spend a week. Beautiful feeling of isolation in the best possible sense - quiet, peaceful and an estate to wander around...but Tesco is 2 miles down a country road! Gilminscroft Gatehouse has a satisfying sense of space for a one-bedroom cottage. We had a warm welcome from Adrian and a pleasant conversation about the estate. He invited us to pay a visit up at the main house to view the Old Stables apartment, which we did. The apartment is next on our list! Gilminscroft is well situated for exploring Ayrshire and beyond - Ayr, Glasgow, Arran, the Clyde coast. However, one of our best trips was walking around Gilminscroft itself after a glass of wine. Just don't forget your camera, as I did. We enjoyed the cottage itself. It is well appointed. The books, prints and ornaments add the perfect touch. In short, we had a splendid week and would not hesitate to return to Gilminscroft.
