Scotland is a modern, dynamic country with a rich heritage. Across millennia, the Scots have remained fiercely proud of a landscape where high mountain meets deep loch; and where a thousand islands rise above dramatic seas. Lying on Scotland's south west coastline, Turnberry's Ayrshire home is a place of gentle beauty and cultural wealth.
Here in the birthplace of Robert the Bruce and Rabbie Burns, the visitor can explore historic ruins, restored castles and fascinating museums, or set sail on a paddle steamer.
Or they can take in the beautiful scenery on a variety of country walks and make the easy trip into Glasgow for a cosmopolitan mix of boutiques and big city living. As a destination in its own right, Turnberry is superb but, if you can tear yourself away from the championship golf courses, luxurious health Spa, exhilarating outdoor activities at Turnberry Adventures and other excellent facilities, you will discover the surrounding area has just as much to offer.
The West Coast contains some of the most inspiring scenery in Scotland, is home to a myriad of different places of interest and is a great place to indulge in a wide range of pursuits: scenic drives, enchanting castles, houses and gardens, an abundance of museums, historical landmarks, cultural attractions and children's interests.
