Ayrshire & Robbie Burns

Burns Night Scotland Burns Supper Scotland Hotel in Scotland


Ayr is famous not only as the birthplace of Robert Burns, Scotland’s National Poet, but also for its strong associations with the game of golf.  Troon is often home to the world-famous Open Championship of Golf and the first ever Open Championship was held at Prestwick Golf Club in Ayrshire in 1860.  On your day trip to Ayrshire, we firmly recommend a visit to Burns Cottage in Alloa, Robert Burns birthplace.
