Interaction with guests
Chris and Susan will be delighted to welcome you and provide you with a tour of the property and keys. If we can provide any additional advice or help with your planning, then please shout. As well as providing a welcome pack, we will also have some freshly made scones ready for the oven on your arrival. We do have our own free range chickens along with 2 Ayesbury ducks - and you're welcome to collect your own free eggs for breakfast If you are attending a wedding at the Brig O'Doon, we will also give you a lift to the hotel and then pick you up again at the end of the night, allowing you to toast the bride and groom as Scotland has extremely rigid drinking laws - just ask.

About the neighbourhood
What guests repeadly tell us is how much they enjoy the peace and tranquiltiy of Doonbank - its woodland; walks by the river and and the wildlife. We are located just a 3 minute drive from Robert Burns heritage museum and cottage. The coast and views across to the Isle of Arran is just 2 minutes in the other direction. Tourist favourites such as Culzean Castle is just a 20 minute drive away. If you are a golfing fan - we have 16 golf courses within a one hour drive - and they include the championship courses of Prestwick; Royal Troon and Trump Turnberry.
Getting around
To benefit fully from the surrounding area and atractions, you do really need a car. However, we have had a number of guests in the past who have been hikers using the Ayrshire Coastal Path and public transport.
