A Place to Stay

The area boasts some fine places to visit for those looking for something else to fill their time, and a glance at the Inside Pages for Ayr, South Ayrshire and Scotland will give you some inspiration. 

Troon aside from it being famous as a venue for world-class golf, is also a seafaring town with a lovely wee marina, a harbour where the fishing boats come in, and a port where passengers can take the car ferry to Northern Ireland.

The Tripadvisor Troon Hotels list is a good place to start when looking for accommodation, but where something a little more personal like a wee Bed and Breakfast is required a visit to the nearest Tourist Information Office or their website www.visitscotland.com will provide all the information you need.  If you want to know what other people think of a particular place then the Tripadvisor forum is where you can ask advice of locals or people who have visited before. 

 Just a few minutes away from Troon by car, bus or train is Prestwick town, and a few miles further down the coast is the county town of Ayr - both towns have a good selection of accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets. Here is a list of the some of the bigger Troon hotels:
