Balgreen is situated in a peaceful, rural setting close to the popular hamlet of Hollybush, some 7 miles from Ayr (15 minute drive) and is easily accessible by the A713 trunk road with magnificent views over open countryside to the Carrick Hills and Isle of Arran screened by mature deciduous woodland. This part of Ayrshire has a coastal network of scenic towns and villages amongst rolling hills and panoramic beach landscapes.
Hollybush has a well regarded local Inn (the Hollybush Inn) and a range of local village amenities including primary school, post office and shops are available at Dalrymple (about 1.8 miles). There is good coverage of broadband available in the area. The county town of Ayr is only a short drive away which offers a comprehensive range of excellent services including restaurants, shopping, supermarkets and a private co-educational school. The Burgh of Ayr was founded in the 12th century. Nearby Alloway was the birthplace of the poet Robert Burns. The town benefits from a wealth of public parks, good path networks and wide sandy beaches on the Firth of Clyde coast. There are some delightful river walks along the River Ayr including a deep wooded gorge ascending to a viewpoint known as Wallace’s Seat. There are frequent train services to Glasgow and beyond. Prestwick Airport, with a comprehensive schedule of international flights, is about 13 miles. Glasgow itself is easily accessible via the A/M77 in a journey time of about 50 minutes.
