Looking for a new home in Ayrshire?
Ayrshire follows the Firth of Clyde along the southwest coast of Scotland, as it passes the Isle of Arran and into the Irish Sea. A new home here is your link in the chain of towns along its shores.
This multi-tasking county embraces the working life of its towns and shares its commuters with Glasgow to the north. It welcomes visitors to the seaside towns and picturesque harbours of Troon, Largs, Dunure and Ballantrae and it hosts the world-famous championship golf course at Turnberry.
The mountains of the Isle of Arran are in sight and ferries to Brodick and Campbeltown set sail from its shores at Ardrossan. Away from the sea, Ayrshire dips south to Dumfries and Galloway and the internationally acclaimed Dark Skies of the Galloway Forest Park. To the north, shared with Renfrewshire and Inverclyde, the Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park is the perfect counter-balance to Glasgow on the South Clyde estuary.
The A77 and A78 trace the coast from Stranraer to Greenock, and the A75, A76 and A77 are the cross-country routes joining the M77, M74 and the A74(M) and putting Glasgow and Carlisle within easy reach.
