It is well located for trips to both Glasgow and Edinburgh and a gateway to the West Highlands of Scotland through the Isle of Arran.
The Waterside Hotel is situated on the beautiful Clyde coast and is central to Ayrshire and Arran is a holiday destination that is as exciting as it is peaceful, and as fascinating as it is fun.
Ayrshire and Arran are a mecca for golfers with over 40 quality courses, including three Open Championship venues, Prestwick, Royal Troon and Turnberry. It is also home to some of the most prestigious heritage and visitor attractions that Scotland has to offer. Ancient castles, beautiful country parks and gardens, bustling market towns and award-winning visitor attractions are all to hand and set in awe-inspiring scenery. The spectacular granite mountains, ancient stone circles and the sheltered waters of the Firth of Clyde act as a magnet for walkers, cyclists, fishermen and sailing enthusiasts alike.
Arran is reached by ferry from Ardrossan and is known as 'Scotland in miniature'. A fascinating and surprising island, it has an unrivalled range of landscapes, covering the whole spectrum of Scottish scenery in one delightfully compact package. It is big enough to offer a bewildering variety of activities yet small enough to retain its intimate island atmosphere.
