Experiencing Robert Burns Birthplace Museum, the Electric Brae and Culzean Castle with a private guide..


(Full day) First stop is the village of Alloway, the birthplace of Scotland's National Bard, Robert Burns. Here we have the opportunity to visit "Burns Cottage" and a major new attraction, the recently opened Robert Burns Birthplace Museum.
We steep ourselves in his history and heritage and visit Alloway Auld Kirk, Brig o' Doon and Burns Monument Garden.

We then skirt the Ayrshire coast and cross over the world famous optical illusion known as "The Electric Brae" on our way to Culzean Castle, seat of the Clan Kennedy. Culzean Castle is one of Scotlands most popular visitor attractions and showcases Robert Adam's architecture and beautifully landscaped gardens on a dramatic clifftop.

This tour allows us to enjoy panoramic views across the Irish Sea and the granite bird Sanctuary of "Ailsa Craig" from where curling stones are hewn.

A Recent Review of this tour

We have completed our three one day tours with George Martin and they we're all great. Can't say enough about the quality of the tours. Lots of great sites and informative storytelling in between. George was also very good at finding great little off the beaten path restaurants and pubs when we needed a break. Aye a bonnie good time!
