The surrounding rolling countryside of the Irvine Valley offers a network of country lanes, ideal for walking, cycling and hacking. The popular Burn Anne Walk is a pleasant 5 mile circuit starting from Lockhart’s Tower (Barr Castle) in Galston. The castle has had many uses over the years from a jail to a wood store. There are many opportunities for games sports in the area and some of South West Scotland’s finest salmon and trout fishing.
