East Ayrshire

Landscape and wildlife in abundance

Nestled between the Ayrshire coast, Dumfries & Galloway and South Lanarkshire, charming East Ayrshire encompasses the towns of Kilmarnock, Cumnock, New Cumnock and Stewarton. The county is home to a number of Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs) in the form of lochs, glens rivers and uplands. The area’s first Local Nature Reserve at Catrine Voes makes an ideal location to spot local wildlife in their natural habitat such as Atlantic Salmon, water voles, otters, kingfishers and heron.

Alternatively, take to the waters of the River Ayr, the River Doon, Loch Doon or Ness Glen for breathtaking views while canoeing.
