Culzean Castle, Burns Country & the Ayrshire Coast / Authentic Europe

Culzean Castle, Burns Country & the Ayrshire Coast

Visit the beautiful Culzean Castle and gardens from the 18th century, Burns country and Ayrshire on this guided day tour from Glasgow. 

Travel south out of Glasgow and into the Renfrewshire Hills where you will get a glimpse into the future at Europe´s largest windfarm, big enough to supply energy to over 180,000 homes. You will pass through rich farming country with many small farms and villages, upon arrival at Culzean Country Park you will have the choice of visiting the castle and gardens or just the gardens and woodland walks. An entry fee is payable on arrival (please note there is no free option at this stop). The castle dates from the late 18th century, a peaceful time in Scottish history so it is less of a defensive castle and more like a great country house with fine furniture and beautiful architecture.

From here the tour follows the coastline to the tiny fishing village of Dunure with its ancient ruined castle and dark history. Continuing on, the road leads down into the outskirts of the market town of Ayr. This is the countryside of Robert Burns, Scotland’s national poet. You will see many places mentioned in his poems and songs –from Auld Kirk Alloway to the “Banks and Braes o’ Bonnie Doon”. From here return to Glasgow.
