Top Attractions near Sandylands

You can experience the beauty of the coast, the peace of the country and the excitement of the city on a break at Sandylands.

The park is just steps away from blissful, golden-hued Stevenston Beach, making it the perfect spot for bucket and spade fun. While further to the south lies the resort of Ayr, where you'll find heaps of traditional seaside entertainment.

For outdoor adventures, visit the Isle of Arran. Reached by ferry from nearby Ardrossan, it's an outdoor playground of mountains, forests and beaches. Back on the mainland, Glasgow serves up some exceptional attractions, shopping, art and dining.
