Discover the landscapes and myths that inspired Scotland’s most famous poet, Robert Burns.

Scotland is both rustic and grand.

You find humble villages beside resplendent castles, rural farms next to engineering feats, and small fishing boats alongside crashing waves.

On this tour, you get to contrast these two sides of Scotland.

You venture to Culzean Castle, a palatial country manor that hosts mazes, awesome architecture, fine coastal views, and tales of smugglers, presidents and ghosts.

And you explore the landscapes that inspired Robert Burns, a poet whose rags to riches story is full of romance and tragedy.

Join this day tour, explore Ayrshire, and see both the rural delights and regal sights of Scotland.

Itinerary

Glasgow

You leave Glasgow and venture into the Renfrewshire Hills.

You have a chance here to admire the largest windfarm in Europe, Whitelee Farm. These massive turbines provide clean energy to over 180,000 homes.

Ayrshire

From here, you take the road south through rich farmlands into Ayrshire.

Now it’s time for one of our favourite stops of the day, the Culzean Country Park. There’s so much to do and see here: take a wander and enjoy the walled garden, ogle beautiful coastal views, and get jealous of the beautiful furniture of this fine country house. You’ll need to pay an entry fee but it’s worth every penny.

You have time for lunch at Culzean before travelling to the village of Dunure. This harbour town hosts a ruined castle and a history of dark secrets.

Alloway

The road now takes you down to the village of Alloway. This is the region that inspired Scotland’s most famous poet, Robert Burns. You get the chance to enjoy the visitor centre to learn about how this poor farmer’s son became the writer of the world famous ‘Auld Lang Syne’. There are also riverside walks and the haunted ruins of an old church for you to explore.

Glasgow

You return to Glasgow in the early evening.
