My son and I stayed at Rushy Glen for 2 weeks in late August and early September. The property is ideally located for golfers, cyclists, beach enthusiasts and hikers. Turnberry gold is 10 minutes away to the south and Troon golf 25 minutes north. There are countless courses in between. For cyclists, the “Ayrshire Alps” are a 15 minute drive — some of the best road cycling in the UK. The secluded beach which stretches for miles sits a 5-8 minute walk down the hill from the house. The Coastal Trail Route is all around Ayrshire and runs close near the beach.
The house itself is beautifully decorated and has all the modern conveniences, including a gourmet kitchen. There are multiple large TVs and a great theatre room in the lower level.
The house is very private. It sits surrounded by well maintained farm fields. The house has wrap around outdoor decks where you can soak in the views of the sea and mountains. The sunsets are unspeakably beautiful.
The city Ayr is a 15 minute drive and has a great choice of restaurants and markets with lots of local produce. We had groceries delivered to the house.
Donna, the homeowner, grew up in the area and is great for all sorts of local advice. If we had any questions, a quick email or text and we had an answer almost immediately— very responsive.
