You leave Glasgow and venture into the Renfrewshire Hills.
You have a chance here to admire the largest windfarm in Europe, Whitelee Farm. These massive turbines provide clean energy to over 180,000 homes.
From here, you take the road south through rich farmlands into Ayrshire.
Now it’s time for one of our favourite stops of the day, the Culzean Country Park. There’s so much to do and see here: take a wander and enjoy the walled garden, ogle beautiful coastal views, and get jealous of the beautiful furniture of this fine country house. You’ll need to pay an entry fee but it’s worth every penny.
You have time for lunch at Culzean before travelling to the village of Dunure. This harbour town hosts a ruined castle and a history of dark secrets.
The road now takes you down to the village of Alloway. This is the region that inspired Scotland’s most famous poet, Robert Burns. You get the chance to enjoy the visitor centre to learn about how this poor farmer’s son became the writer of the world famous ‘Auld Lang Syne’. There are also riverside walks and the haunted ruins of an old church for you to explore.
You return to Glasgow in the early evening.
