As this is such a fantastic rural area of Scotland, it's ideal for those looking to step back from the modern world and get back to nature. Pull on your walking boots and head out on one of the many nearby trails which pass your front door. They include the River Ayr Way, where it's quite possible you'll spot an array of wildlife including black grouse, hen harriers and short-eared owls. Keep your camera handy! The town of Mauchline (7 miles) and the village of Muirkirk (10 miles) both have a variety of shops for picking up supplies, while the former has a traditional pub and restaurant as well. For a relaxing day on the coast, head 16 miles west where you'll find the many fabulous sandy beaches of Ayrshire. Keen golfers are spoilt for choice in this area, with the championship courses of Troon and Prestwick both within 20 miles of the cabin. Guests of all ages will love exploring the woods, beaches and parkland at the National Trust for Scotland's magnificent Culzean Castle, which is a 25-mile drive away. Perched on the cliffs, it's a super day out for all the family with 40 buildings and secret follies to be discovered along the way.

We had a great holiday with children and grandchildren in a huge house with a stunning location. Quite unique in style,well equipped and comfortable. Some furnishings a little tired but well worth the reasonable price. Plenty of trips within easy distance. Children aged 2 to 14 loved it.

This was our 2nd time at the Log House, this time for a family get together for a 70th birthday. The layout is perfect for a big family or friends. The house is very well equipped and very spacious. There are lovely walks from the door and some great places to visit, such as Ayr and Culzean Castle. I would highly recommend the Log House.
