Gilminscroft Gatehouse description

This charming detached gatehouse is situated quietly within the beautiful grounds of the Gilmilnscroft Estate, with formal gardens, enchanted woods rich in flora and fauna with lovely walks, and fields with its own resident sheep. Located close to the quiet village of Sorn with easy access to the River Ayr Way, with over 40 miles of walks through one of the most interesting valleys in southern Scotland with a wide range of habitats and wildlife. Dumfries House, made famous by Prince Charles’ involvement is located approximately 3 miles away from the property, and it is major attraction in East Ayrshire, as is Auchinleck House, home to James Boswell, which is a similar distance away. Also close is the wonderful Ayrshire Coastal Path, over 100 miles along one of the finest panoramic coastlines. Inland there are gardens and castles to visit, riding, racing, a choice of golf courses and several country parks to visit, with Culzean Castle, 45 minutes away, (owned by the National Trust for Scotland) being Ayrshire’s most popular tourist attraction with a network of wooded trails passing along the beach. Day trips to Ireland can be taken from Cairnryan. The bustling cosmopolitan city of Glasgow is only a 45-minute drive and Edinburgh is 1½ hours, with good train links from Prestwick. Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park is approximately 1 hour away and the ferry links to the islands of Cumbrae, Bute and Arran are all close by. Beach 15 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
