Things to do
Viewfield Manor is located close to a number of picturesque coastal towns, the Ayrshire Coastal Path and the beautiful Isle of Arran. All this and more makes it the perfect place to go to see more of the idyllic Scottish countryside.
Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park
Do something brilliant at Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. Discover incredible views, see beautiful wildlife and get in touch with nature in the best way by winding up at a waterfall. This beautiful park encompasses around 720sq miles of some of the finest scenery in Scotland including rolling lowlands and high mountains.
Clyde Muirshiel Park
Visit the park for people! Scotland’s largest regional park is just a short distance from Viewfield Manor and has 8 parks with a whole host of activities and things to see! At Lunderston Bay you can explore rockpools with a brilliant array of creatures, as well as seeing seals and boats in the River Clyde. Enjoy sailing, paddle sports and more at Castle Semple Country Park and take to the hills with a variety of walks for all abilities.
Irvine/Kilwinning New Town Trail
Part of the National Cycle Network, the Irvine and Kilwinning New Town Trail is a circular pedestrian route some 12 miles in length. Following the main river valleys between some beautiful locations, you will take in the sights of Irvine town centre, Eglinton Country Park, the Garnock Floods and the Town Moor.
Take a day trip to the Isle of Arran
Why not stop by ‘Scotland in Miniature’ during your trip to the area? Getting to Arran couldn’t be easier with a ferry from nearby Ardrossan to the island’s capital Brodick. Whilst there you can enjoy the Brodick and Lamlash circuit, an 8 mile coastal walk which takes you through Lamlash, one of the island’s largest villages, then back through the wooded Fairy Glen to the capital. This walk starts at the ferry terminal and is estimated to take around 4-5 hours to complete.
Walk the Ayrshire Coastal Path: Troon to Irvine
Enjoy a 7 mile walk on your next Ayrshire visit! This route takes you from the promenade in Troon, out of the town along the sandy Irvine Bay and into Irvine Harbour overlooking the Bogside Flats. This route can be done on sandy coastal paths most of the way, however if the sea breeze is getting a bit too much there is a path that runs parallel to the beach, behind the sand dunes, which will protect you from the elements!
