Culzean Castle, Burns Country and The Ayrshire Coast Excursions à Glasgow
Culzean Castle, Burns Country and The Ayrshire Coast: Departing from Glasgow the first stop of the day is at Europe’s largest windfarm – big enough to supply clean energy to over 180,000 homes. From here the road south into Ayrshire is quick and you will soon arrive at Culzean Castle and Gardens. 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 a defensive castle and more like a great country house with fine furniture and beautiful Robert Adam architecture. Sitting right on the edge of the cliffs looking out over the Firth of Clyde the views are superb and the surrounding gardens are beautiful. This Will also be your lunch stop.
After lunch you will follow the coastline to the tiny fishing village of Dunure with its ancient ruined castle and dark history. Continuing on, the road leads through the countryside of Robert Burn’s – Scotland national poet - and you will see many places mentioned in his poems and songs. The recently redeveloped visitor centre in Alloway will tell you all you need to know about this remarkable man – born a poor farmer’s son but now famous as the writer of “Auld Lang Syne” – a song known and sung in friendship throughout the world.
