Pitcon Cottage is a delightful little cottage situated within a countryside setting North of the town of Dalry in North Ayrshire.
Dalry has a good range of local shops and services that adequately cater for every day needs and requirements.
The nearby, almost equidistant, North Ayrshire towns of Beith and Kilwinning combine to provide a further extensive range of local amenities including education, retail, entertainment and transport links.
The A737 (recently improved with the Dalry bypass) 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 (1.7 miles from Pitcon Cottage), with a frequent service to Glasgow city every thirty minutes and the Ayrshire coast. The international airports of Prestwick and Glasgow are also almost equidistant at approximately 18 miles.
Glasgow city (24.8 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 Scotlands 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 landowners 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.
