Golf Ayrshire Trips & Excursions

If you and your party decide to take a day off golfing during your golf holiday in Ayrshire why not consider one of the wide selection of day trips available through Golf Ayrshire. Ayrshire is ideally located to explore the many attractions that the West of Scotland and Ayrshire has to offer. You may decide to visit the cosmopolitan city of Glasgow and view the Burrell Collection, appreciate the city's Rennie McIntosh architecture, take a trip round the football grounds of the famous Glasgow Rangers or Glasgow Celtic, or maybe prefer a leisurely day visiting the Bonny Bonny Banks of Loch Lomond. All this is within a very short journey of your hotel in Ayrshire.

We can also offer a very interesting whisky tasting excursion where you can taste and enjoy the various whiskies that are on offer. This excursion is definitely a whisky connoisseurs delight.

Golf Ayrshire can also organise a day trip to Edinburgh, the scenic and beautiful capital of Scotland. Edinburgh is steeped in history and culture and is one of the most famous and visited cities in the world. A trip round Edinburgh Castle or a tour round the many museums is highly recommended. Even just a walk along Princes Street or George Street will help you appreciate the beauty of this majestic city. Again all these sights in Edinburgh are only over an hour's journey from your hotel.

Spouses & Partners

We realise that some parties will be bringing their spouses or partners with them and whilst you are playing golf we will organise any trips or excursions that may appeal to your wife/ husband or partner. Just tell us how they would prefer to spend the day and we will plan organise and arrange it.
