Ideally located for walking and cycling holidays: The cottage is located on Cycle Route 7 which take visitors north to Ayr or south into the Galloway Forest. The hill roads of nearby South Carrick make up the ultimate road cyclist's playground. Popularly referred to as 'The Ayrshire Alps', the terrain offers fantastic scenery, cycle friendly roads, and a tough cycling challenge. http://www.ayrshirealps.org/ http://www.ayrshirepaths.org.uk/cyclepathsmaybole.htm The cottage is 4 miles from the rambling town of Straiton, . There are farm, field and woodland walks, river side strolls and hill top views. http://www.ayrshirepaths.org.uk/walkstraiton.htmMore
