Ballantrae from the south

Ballantrae is situated on Ballantrae Bay on the South Ayrshire coast, at the mouth of the River Stinchar. The village was a fishing Port and a favourite haunt of smugglers. The village gave its name to Robert Louis Stevensons brooding novel the Master of Ballantrae, and may have been inspired by an incident in 1876 when the great writer was said to have been stoned by the residents of Ballantrae, who were apparently upset by his clothing.

The village has a shop, post office, primary school, doctorsí surgery, hotel, bowling green and small harbour. Ballantrae is approx 11 miles south of Girvan and is on the A77. This corner of south west Ayrshire is renowned for varied and unspoilt scenery and a particularly mild climate throughout the year.

For those who enjoy outdoor pursuits the area is perfect. As well as excellent golfing facilities at Girvan, Dailly and Turnberry there are the usual field sports, excellent rivers for fishing and some superb routes for walking. The National Trust for Scotlandís Culzean Castle and Galloway Forest Park can be reached quite easily by a relatively short car drive.
