    This charming, equestrian themed, first floor apartment, forming the upper portion of the old stables, is situated quietly within the attractive grounds of the Gilmilnscroft Estate with fabulous gardens and lovely walks throughout. New for summer 2019 is a fully refurbished summer house, for use of both properties. The owner will be pleased to show you the beautifully preserved Victorian stables that lie below.
    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.
    The Old Stables (UK5695) and Gilmilnscroft Gatehouse (UK5164) can be booked together to accommodate up to 8 guests.

Great place to stay for peace and quiet. For attractions and places to visit, you have to drive. The pub is about a mile, but walking involves using the verges in a 60mph limit. Great place for self catering and the owner is accommodating and helpful. No light pollution so the night sky is beautiful.
