Groupon’s Guide To Ayrshire
Honoured as Rabbie Burns’ birthplace, Ayrshire’s tumbling crags and coastline are hallowed ground for conquering wayfarers.
Drenched in military history, this south-westerly county is home to more than 40 stone castles, and has seen struggles fought by Robert the Bruce and William Wallace. Battles of a more sporting nature take place today across some of Scotland’s finest links golf courses, which stretch across the region’s dramatic beaches and up into the hills. Famously the only place in Britain ever visited by Elvis Presley, Ayrshire is amply connected by Glasgow Prestwick International Airport, which lets visitors sample its culture, landscape, and exquisite local malts.
