Tourism - Prestwick and Troon surrounding villages

Barassie

Barassie lies between Troon and Irvine offering magnificent views over to the Isle of Arran. With a wide expanse of sandy beach and a grassy area with a putting green, this is a popular spot for picnics.

Craigie

The quiet attractive village of Craigie is set in the hills ten miles north-east of Troon, with a church, an inn, a few houses and an ancient hill.

Dundonald

The village of Dundonald lies on the B730 three miles north of Troon. Dundonald Castle is arguably the only medieval Royal Castle in Scotland which is still recognisable.

Monkton

The village of Monkton is situated close to the runways of Glasgow Prestwick International Airport, offering excellent views for plane spotters. The Navy Base HMS Gannet and a British Aerospace factory are located here.

Symington

Part of this charming village has been designated a Conservation Area, mainly as a result of the many attractive buildings which still remain in the village to this day. Between Symington and Tarbolton you can find Hayes Garden Land, well worth a visit.

Tarbolton

Tarbolton is situated east of Prestwick and is dominated by its tall parish church. The village is also famous for its links with Robert Burns.
