Things to do

Links Lodge Bed and Breakfast is situated deep in the heart of Rabbie Burns country and the area is steeped in Burns related history. From the modern take on the Burns museum Tam o Shanter experience in nearby Alloway, to the newly refurbished Souter's Inn in Kirkoswald, you can't go far without seeing the influence of the local Bard. For those of you who enjoy the great outdoors, Culzean Castle offers miles of woodland and coastal walks with stunning scenery, Shanter riding centre 1 mile along the road caters for our horsey-minded guests or you could simply tumble out of bed and blow away the cobwebs with a brisk stroll along our stunning stretch of sandy beach right on the doorstep! There are many excellent restaurants in the area and we will be happy to make advance bookings and arrange transport for you.
