Arran is one of the most accessible of the Scottish islands and one of the most southerly. The line between the Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland divides the island almost exactly in two and Arran mirrors the differing landscapes of the country more widely, forming a "Scotland in miniature". The north is ruggedly mountainous and sparsely populated, the south softer in landscape and home to the majority of the people who live here. Arran is easily accessible from Hillhouse and the island provides a range of activities to suit everyone for a memorable day trip.
Troon is host to some of the best kitesurfing and windsurfing beaches on the Scottish mainland. The water is warmed by the Gulf Stream effect, meaning it is possible to kite or windsurf at any time of year, however the months of April - October offer the best conditions.
There are numerous historic houses and sites in Ayrshire to visit; such as the birthplace of the great Scottish poet Robert Burns and Culzean Castle but the most interesting is Dumfries House.
Dumfries House is an 18th century time capsule nestling in 2000 acres of countryside. With its exquisite contents, it has remained virtually unchanged for over 250 years. The House was saved from the auctioneer's hammer by HRH Prince Charles, The Prince of Wales. Designed by the renowned 18th century architect brothers, John, Robert and James Adam, Dumfries House was built between 1754 and 1759. The house holds the most important collection of works from Thomas Chippendale which is now on public display. Hillhouse can organise a private tour of this stunning house for our guests.
