Burnbrae Farm is situated amid rolling farmland and countryside about 0.3 miles to the north west of the pretty, popular and convenient Ayrshire rural conservation village of Symington.

Symington is extremely attractive with its narrow main street, stone cottages and popular country pub and restaurant. The village also has a rare and impressive Norman Church dating from the 12th century.

Symington has local provisions stores and a recently opened mid-sized Co-op which adequately cater for every day needs and requirements. There is an excellent primary school in the village with higher education at Prestwick Academy. The district has an extensive choice of both state and independent sector primary and secondary schooling in nearby Ayr, Troon, Prestwick and Kilmarnock, as well as Kilmarnock College which offers further education.

Burnbrae Farm is a short drive from main access routes (A77) to Glasgow, Ayr, Irvine and Kilmarnock. Prestwick Airport offers a number of domestic and international destinations and is about 5 miles to the south. Kilmarnock, Prestwick and Troon all offer main line railway links to Glasgow, Edinburgh and beyond.

The main road junction on the A77 has recently undergone a significant re-engineering improvement and provides easy access to the village.

Ayr is 9 miles to the south offering a good range of high street and boutique shops, supermarkets, recreational and professional facilities. In addition Ayr has a number of well-renowned restaurants. Nearby Prestwick and Troon also have a number of superb restaurants, including the famous Macallums Oyster Bar, Scotts at the marina as well as a number of fantastic delis, craft butchers and coffee shops.

Ayrshire is famous worldwide for golf with the home of Open Golf, Prestwick Golf Club as well as current Open Championship courses at Royal Troon and Turnberry. Former Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomery’s new course at Rowallan Castle is a 10 minutes’ drive away in Kilmaurs.

Surrounding country roads offer pleasant walks and horse riding hacks, with a wide range of first class equestrian facilities on the doorstep.

The west coast of Scotland is globally renowned for its natural scenic beauty and extensive range of coastal sailing. A marina and full chandlery service are at Troon and further up the coast at Ardrossan, Largs and Inverkip.

Ayrshire has extensive opportunities for field sports. Some of the local low ground shoots are run commercially and the Ayrshire coast and rivers offer some of the best opportunities to fish for trout and salmon.
