    This is a lovely treat, tucked away on the outskirts of Troon. Brilliant woodland walk with fairy houses and carvings along the way to keep little ones amused. Good park, clean public toilets and nice picnic spot. Kept an 11, 9 and 3 year old happy for an afternoon - which says it all!

    This is more than a museum, it's the actual place where ships were designed and models of them tested. Going around the rooms and looking at the exhibits gives you a good idea of what it would have been like, and the helpful and informative guide took us through the history and what the machines and equipment - still in place - all did. Highly recommended.

    Had a lovely walk along the beach. Not very busy as still early in the season. Lovely and fresh as was a strong wind. Hats and gloves a must.

    Fantastic for young & old! Absolutely stunning grounds with miles of miles of beautiful scenery there’s always something to see or do it’s fantastic for waking your dogs or simply fishing in there lake (you must have a permit for this) but I’ve been coming for over 25 years and I’m still finding new routes to explore with the kids and dogs.

    We, being me, my 10 year old and her bestie, went in the October School holidays. Was brilliant. Highlight of our holiday.

    Fab welcome, felt safe, the Dean Castle exhibits was what we went for. Saw more than we expected to in that. So well done.... Was so impressed.

    But there was so much more too. If you get the chance to visit, would highly recommend. We will be back.

    Back again for another fabulous visit, the wildlife is unbelievable with such a large variety of birds, we took peanuts with us this time and had Robins eating out of you hands, we even saw Nuthatches which are very rare in Scotland. Lots of squirrels wanting the peanuts as well. I was so pleased that we had booked a table in their tearoom at lunch time as the place filled up just after we sat down, the food was first class along with the service that we received. Can't wait to go back, well done to management and staff for looking after us.

    Reachable by a 19 minute walk from the town centre, this iconic landmark has great views at it and on the way to it.

    The Cathedral of the Isles in Millport is a large, attractive church with extra buildings for the accommodation and teaching of visiting students. The grounds are most pleasant and the overall look of the place is smart and attractive.
    Because of the current Covid threat however, the church is only open on Sundays for worship, and closed to the public at all other times.

    I must say that I can see little sense in such a policy as there would almost invariably be much fewer people in the church as casual visitors than there would be at a service. I have visited several churches over the past few months and we have tended to be the only people there.

    That said, we enjoyed our visit nevertheless and look forward to seeing the interior of the church at a later stage when church policy permits access.

    The ferry was not too busy so seating areas were not too busy which was a good job because although covid regulations were in place a lot of people were not complying and staff were not doing anything to enforce. Ferry left on time both journeys and seating areas are comfy.

    Lovely visit to Dean Castle Country Park.
    Very clean and well maintained.
    Various trails, deer and farm animals.
    Would recommend the yellow countryside trail for dogs.
    Large cafe and take away kiosk also.
    The castle is currently closed for renovations.
