Robert Burns birthplace, Dunure, The Electric Brae in a Jaguar XJ6


I will meet you from your ship or Glasgow hotel at 9am or earlier if necessary.
We will go to Glasgow to let you see the city centre as an overview and we will then leave for Culzean Castle which is near in Ayrshire. On The way back we will drive around the "Heads of Ayr" which always has to include the very strange experience of the Electric Brae -- ( the car rolls up a hill but cannot roll down it) then onwards to Dunure and Robert Burns birthplace and visitors centre in Alloway on the outskirts of Ayr.

From Alloway we will make our way back to your ship to arrive at the time given to you by the cruise line.

Itinerary

Culzean Castle and Country Park is the main destination. My suggestion would be to look at the Culzean Castle website. In the grounds you can visit the walled gardens the deer park and swan lake. Lunch can also had in the castle grounds.

Transportation

We will use my car. Please note that the journey is around 1 hour 30 minutes to Culzean. The car has air con and full leather.
It's a Jaguar XJ6. It is a six cylinder 3 litre model and is the safest car on the road today.

What’s Included

Other: My time as your driver and all fuel is included as is the use of my Jaguar XJ6

Entry to Culzean Country Park is free of charge as I am a member of the National Trust for Scotland - so there is no charge for the car or passengers.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

45 GPB - Entrance fees to Culzean Castle and the estate also entrance fees to the actual Burns museum. Please note that to experience the centre you do not have to go into the museum -- there is much to see without going into the museum - and it's all free of charge.

What’s Extra

Other: You pay for your own food and entrance fees.
