SITUATION
The cottages are situated in an accessible location just to the south of Ballantrae within rural South Ayrshire, approximately 35 miles south west of Ayr.

In the heart of the Stinchar Valley, the pretty coastal village of Ballantrae is known for its superb scenery and thriving community. Local village amenities include a grocery store, post office, coffee shop, garden centre, garage with 24-hour fuel, Medical Centre with Dispensary and a well-regarded primary school. Further services, including secondary schooling, a new community hospital and supermarket are found at the seaside town of Girvan, around 13 miles, whilst Ayr offers both private and state secondary schools, shops and cinema as well as a popular racecourse.

The Galloway Forest Park has opportunities for walking and outdoor pursuits and is close to hand. There are also many opportunities for game sports, with some of South West Scotland’s best salmon and trout fishing available in the area’s lochs and rivers, including the River Stinchar, which enters the sea at Ballantrae. The popular long distance Ayrshire Coastal Path passes through the village and connects with the Loch Ryan Coastal Path which takes walkers as far as Stranraer and the Southern Upland Way.

Glasgow Prestwick Airport is about 41 miles distant with regular flights to Europe. Ayrshire is renowned for its many golf courses including Turnberry and Dailly and Stranraer, all within 20 miles. The railway station in Girvan provides regular services to Glasgow and Stranraer. There are regular ferry services from Cairnryan (about 17 miles) to Ireland.
