Inverdon Summer View


Welcome Pack


On arrival at Inverdon, you will find a handy 'Welcome Pack' waiting for you which is full of useful info about our apartment, Ayr itself and local amenities but we thought we'd put a copy on here so you can also access the info when you're out & about!

We are sure you will enjoy your time staying with us in the heart of Burns’ country with great access to local amenities including bars, restaurants, leisure centres, a cinema, golf courses & parks and, of course, Ayr’s beautiful beaches!

The apartment lies within extensive, mature grounds so please feel free to make full use of our dedicated guest seating area in the side gardens of Inverdon featuring a four seater table with chairs and foot stools. Our garden set can be seen from the bedroom windows and is hiding under a black rain cover.

We kindly ask guests to keep in mind that, although you have the entire apartment to yourselves, the building is shared, as are the grounds, so we respectfully ask that there's no excessive noise, particularly loud music, that could disturb our lovely neighbours. Inverdon is not a place for parties I’m afraid 😊.

The nearest convenience store is Seafield Stores which is approximately ten minutes’ walk away at 43-45 Blackburn Dr, Ayr KA7 2XW and, as well as the usual groceries, also has a Pharmacy and Post Office. Opening hours are generally 6am to 7pm seven days a week but they sometimes stay open later during the summer months. If you would like to call them to check, their number is 01292 - 284451. When leaving Inverdon, turn right and continue straight through the traffic lights, Seafield Stores is to be found a short distance further on your right. There is also a late-night Spar on Boswell Park which is around 5 minutes’ drive away.

The nearest big supermarket is Morrison’s on Castlehill Road and can be reached in around 6 or 7 minutes by car and around 20 minutes on foot. You can find Morrison’s included on the map below.


We have two wonderful, licenced hotels nearby that provide a lovely, homely atmosphere with an open fire (in winter months) and wholesome food on offer throughout the day. The Chestnuts Hotel is around five minutes’ walk away (turn right when leaving Inverdon’s driveway and you will find The Chestnuts Hotel on the right by the traffic lights) and The Abbotsford Hotel is approximately 3 minutes’ walk away (turn left out of the driveway and The Abbotsford is to be found a short distance along on your left.

If you prefer Indian or Chinese food there is a lovely Indian restaurant with beautiful sea views just past Seafield Stores on Blackburn Drive (Ayr India on 01292 - 263731) and an equally good Chinese restaurant on The Sandgate, around 25 minutes’ walk away. It’s called Ruby 7 Days and can be reached on 01292 – 267131. Both will happily deliver too.

Local taxis can be booked with Gribbens Taxis on 01292 - 260000 and they also have a downloadable app named ‘Thistle Cabs’.

The Citadel Leisure Centre offers a wide range of amenities including a swimming pool and gyms. It is located on Ayr’s beautiful seafront and can be reached by car in around ten minutes or on foot in around half an hour by walking along Ayr’s promenade which can be found just beyond Seafield Stores & Ayr India on Blackburn Drive.

We have a local Odeon Cinema (0333-014-4501) which is located on Burns Statue Square, around ten to fifteen minutes’ walk away and a Bowling Alley on Miller Road (LA Bowl 01292 – 611511), approximately ten minutes’ walk away from Inverdon.

Scotland is the world-renowned home of Golf and some of the best courses are in Ayr, Prestwick and nearby Troon (around 10 miles away). The view to the front of Inverdon is actually over ‘The Old Racecourse’, hence the name ‘Racecourse View’, and the very well-regarded Belleisle Golf Course just beyond which is accessed via Doonfoot Road. Turn right out of Inverdon, turn left at the traffic lights and the entrance to Belleisle Golf Course is a short distance along on your left-hand side.


The ferry service to the stunning Isle of Arran is very regular (weather dependent) and leaves from Ardrossan which is approximately half an hour’s drive away or just under an hour by train.

We sincerely hope you won’t need to but, should you need to turn the water off in an emergency, please use the stopcock in the Blue Bedroom, to the left of the window, behind the little door.
