About Troon

The beautiful and still mostly traditional seaside town of Troon sits on the Ayrshire coastline and boasts stunning sandy beaches with views overlooking Ailsa Craig and the Isle of Arran. It retains the old seaside charm whilst offering modern facilities for the visitor.

World famous as the venue for The Open Championship which is played at Royal Troon, golfers are spoilt for choice with seven golf courses to suit every budget but Troon has so much more to offer than just well manicured fairways with great restaurants, festivals and more.

The town centre offers a variety of independant cafes, unique gift shops and hosts a monthly street market offering fresh local produce. 

Troon Yacht Haven offers fantastic facilities for sailing enthusiasts and both North and South Beaches are well used by wind and kite surfers with some spectacular action available on a windy day! Alternatively you can just take it easy and stroll along the miles of beaches south towards Prestwick or head north towards Irvine. You may lose track of time!

With two stations, Troon and Barassie, and two services per hour to and from Glasgow and Ayr, it is easy to reach by train and by car the town is no more than forty minutes from the centre of Glasgow whilst Prestwick Airport is only a couple of miles away.

Whether you're looking for a local day out shopping, a weekend short break, a live music festival or an activity holiday there is something for everyone in and around Troon
