Ayrshire is renowned for its many golf courses including the world famous facilities at Royal Troon, Prestwick and Turnberry. The world class 19 hole golf course designed by Colin Mongtomerie at Rowallan Castle, Kilmaurs is 5½ miles away. There are excellent equestrian facilities at Morris Equestrian Centre with an international indoor arena and fine sailing on the Firth of Clyde with yachting marinas at Troon, Largs and Inverkip.
