Situation
Chapelhill House is situated in the mature residential, conservation, central part of the North Ayrshire town of Dalry.

Surrounding properties are of a similar vintage and quality which combine to enhance the maturity and established feel of Aitken St.

The centre of Dalry is a short walk where there are good local shops and services that adequately cater for every day needs and requirements.

The North Ayrshire towns of Dalry, Beith and Kilwinning combine to provide a further extensive range of local amenities including education, retail, entertainment and transport links.

The A737 provides good access to the M8 motorway corridor and Glasgow city. As well as to the ever developing Ayrshire coastline. There is a main line railway station in Dalry less than ten minute walks away, with a frequent service to Glasgow city every thirty minutes and the Ayrshire coast. The international airports of Prestwick and Glasgow are almost equidistant at 15.5 and 16 miles respectively.

Glasgow city (24.5 miles) provides an excellent range of professional services, higher education, cultural and retail facilities normally associated with a major city centre.

Tourism is a thriving industry in Ayrshire. The main town of Ayr has its own racecourse and is arguably Scotland's golfing Mecca with the home of the Open Championship at Prestwick and present day Open Championship links at Turnberry and Royal Troon. Alloway is the birthplace of Robert Burns and his legacy continues to draw people to the area.

For the field sportsman/woman the rivers of Ayrshire offer salmon fishing by permit, the Garnock water, which runs through Dalry, has a back end run of salmon. The district also offers some commercially run and challenging low ground driven pheasant shooting and with permission some of the local estates and land owners allow the chance to stalk roe deer.

Sea fishing sport is available on the Ayrshire coastline.

There are marina, yachting and chandlery services at Troon, Largs and Ardrossan and the lower reaches of the river Clyde together with the Ayrshire islands offer some of the most scenically attractive coastal sailing in the United Kingdom.
