After traveling around Scotland and playing golf for three weeks, I reached this area for a six night stay. The area offers access to many very good golf courses and this B&B is conveniently located for access to courses such as Turnberry (35 minutes away), Royal Troon (very close), Prestwick (also very close) and Western Gailes (about ten minutes away).
Peter provided excellent information prior to my arrival, which was very helpful in planning my trip. My stay with him could not have been better. The house is modern and away from street noise, so it is quiet. My room was spacious and the bed comfortable. Had tub and shower in bathroom. Morning breakfast was excellent and had a range of menu options. There was a muiti-channel TV with Sky sports so the U.S. Open golf tournament was available for viewing on the night of my arrival. The facility had good literature regarding golf and other tourist activities in the area. Free wi-fi was very good.
The location is such that I would consider this area as part of a combination Ireland/Scotland golf trip, with ferry from Belfast or near Belfast to Troon. The abundance of courses in the area makes it especially attractive. The courses seem generally available and the area seems relaxed and uncrowded with golfers (at least the week i was there).
I'd return to the area for more golf and would definitely contact Dormie House for lodging. In fact, I would probably consider the availability of Dormie House in setting up my itinerary in the first place.
