Beautiful Georgian mansion situated in one of the most enchanting, secluded positions within the famously lush countryside of South Ayrshire.


Glebe House is situated in one of the most enchanting, secluded positions within the famously lush countryside of South Ayrshire. Surrounded by mature immaculate gardens which include a small golf course and woodland providing additional privacy and screening. Glebe House is close to the heart of Burns country, with the most tangible remainder of Burns in the village of Kirkoswald. Souter Johnnie’s cottage has been restored and is now in the care of the National Trust of Scotland. This picturesque village dates back to 1244 and was built by monks who at the same time founded Crossraguel Abbey, two miles to the north east. Turnberry Hotel, built by James Miller, was opened in 1906 as the world’s first golf resort and has since established itself as one of the world’s premier destinations for golf. Trump Turnberry hotel and golf course are shortly to be reopened after extensive refurbishment.

Ayr is Ayrshire’s foremost town and offers a good range of high street shops, supermarkets, recreational and professional facilities and a number of well known restaurants. There is excellent private schooling at Wellington School for children from the age of 3 – 18.

The Ayrshire coast is famous worldwide for golf with championship courses at Turnberry (the venue for the British Open in 2009), Royal Troon and Prestwick Old (the original home of the British Open). There is also excellent sailing with yachting marinas at Troon and further up the coast at Largs and Inverkip. South Ayrshire is also noted for its field sports including pheasant, partridge and game and grouse shooting and there is first class shooting on nearby estates.

Prestwick Airport is just to the north of Ayr and has services to London Stansted and many European destinations while Glasgow and Edinburgh Airports provide a wider range of domestic, European and international flights.
