In Scotland there are a number of different airports which visitors can fly into including Glasgow Prestwick which can be found on the west coast of Scotland. Anyone wishing to rent a van from here can do so from one of the four outlets within the airport or local suppliers close by. Glasgow is a short drive away from here and can be reached in 30 to 40 minutes which is only a short drive.
Most of the visitors head north to the nearest city which is Glasgow. Try heading south instead for a relaxing holiday along the A77 and stopping off at any one of the seaside resorts along the west perhaps Maybole, Ayr, Irvine. Lots of interesting stop overs.
Ayr is about 30 minutes or so from the your arrival point and is a popular tourist stop off in the area. A large town offering a great variety of shops for all sorts of souvenirs. There is a beach and play park along the promenade for you to enjoy your stroll along the beach. The town is busy in the summer with tourists visiting from all over the country.
Girvan is about 45 minutes by car from the airport and around 30 miles travelling . This is a lovely sleepy seaside town to visit with local shops selling Scottish local products with the are surrounded by a lovely sandy beach and small harbour. The best fish and chip shop is located by the harbour next to the amusement arcade which is unusual in that the owners cook your meal while you wait.
A short 10 minute drive will find you in Turnberry which is home to golf in Scotland. A short round of golf is any golfer’s dream to play on this course as the course is televised when major events are on in Scotland. You can stay in the hotel or on site at one of the local parks and perhaps stop by the club house for lunch.
Apart from the obvious main attractions you can go online and research all the sites and places to visit before you arrive you will be bound to find lots of places to interest you and your group and pass the time.
