Things to do in the area:
Golf Packages:
The Beechwood is surrounded by many golf courses, making us a golfer's haven. Golf holidays arranged including tee off times, Itineraries and transport.

Golf in South Ayrshire:
The Beechwood is right in the heart of Scotland's 'Golf Coast' near to the championship courses Royal Troon, Turnberry, Western Gailes, Glasgow Gailes, Kilmarnock, Barassie and Irvine Bogside.
The most notable is Prestwick, the Birthplace of Open Championship Golf and mecca to golfers the world over. The first Open Championship was held at Prestwick in 1860. The 'Open' was played 24 times at Prestwick - the last in 1925 - thereafter the crowds became too large.

The choice of courses is endless. South Ayrshire's municipal courses offer superb golf and good value, especially Belleisle, Lochgreen and Darley.
These excellent courses are extremely popular with visitors and locals alike.
Packages, including tee-off times to suit all standards and budgets, can be tailor made.

Ayr Racecourse:
Ayr is Scotland's premier racecourse, hosting both Flat and National Hunt fixtures. Normally holding at least 25 days racing every year Ayr is host to the Scottish Grand National, the Ayr Gold Cup and a host of other valuable races during it's 12 month racing programme.
The highlight of the jumping season is undoubtedly the Scottish Grand National, held in April, just a couple of weeks or so after the Aintree equivalent with many top performers taking in both races. None have so far emulated the great Red Rum who won both races in 1974

Isle of Arran:
Often referred to as 'Scotland in Miniature', the Isle of Arran within a short compass captures many aspects of the beauty of Scotland as a whole, from towering granite peaks inviting hill walkers and climbers to peaceful sandy bays overlooked by palm trees growing in the warm climate of The Gulf Stream.

The wildlife is outstanding, with deer, pheasant, otter and eagle readily seen in the mountains. There are over 100 species of birds.
There are colonies of seals near coastal caves, trails and pathways to mysterious Bronze Age Stone Circles, and many relaxing angling hours to be enjoyed by streams or sea.
7 challenging golf courses tempt the golfer, whilst history and heritage is catered for at Brodick Castle and various museums.

The Waverley:
The famous Waverley - the last sea-going paddle steamer in the world. It is thought that this famous ship is probably the most photographed ship in the world!
Built on the Clyde in 1947 - to replace the original Waverley that sunk off Dunkirk in 1940, the Waverley was originally built to sail only between Craigendorran & Arrochar in West Scotland.
It is amazing to think that she now sails right round Britain offering regular trips on the Clyde, the Thames, South Coast of England and the Bristol Channel with other calls at various ports & piers throughout the UK.
1 doesn't get you much these days, but in 1974 it bought a 693-tonne paddle steamer! Mounting running costs left the then operators no choice but to withdraw Waverley from service with the idea of preserving this unique ship.

The Paddle Steamer Preservation Society (PSPS) stepped in and took over the helm - for the princely sum of 1. It is a credit to the Society and supporters that the Waverley became more than a museum and now operates a full programme of cruises from Easter to October.

Burns Cottage:
Now fully restored to its original state forms the heart of Burns National Heritage Park - a unique encounter with Scotland's most exceptional man. Set among the delightful scenery of historic Alloway, Burns National Heritage Park is an unmatched opportunity to experience Scotland's National Poet.

Like a storybook castle, this fantastic example of Robert Adam's genius stands dramatically on a cliff with superb views across the sea to the mountains of the Island of Arran. Between 1777 and 1792 Adam converted an old fortified towercastle for David Kennedy, the 10th Earl of Cassillis, creating at Culzean (pronounced "Cullane") probably the finest Georgian castle in Scotland. Its Circular Saloon and Oval Staircase are acknowledged as Adam's final masterpiece.
