Sailing and Cruises
You can't really help but notice the Firth of Clyde when staying at The Fairfield! As much as Ayrshire may be great for golfers, the area also provides wonderful sailing opportunities.
The Firth of Clyde is one of the largest areas of sheltered deep water in the British Isles, and as a result has been a key attraction for recreational sailing for well over a hundred years. With the increase in marinas and support facilities it has become increasingly popular as a playground for local owners, as a destination for sailors sailing their own yachts or for those looking for a charter yacht holiday.
The Clyde now as a choice of marinas with capacity for several thousand boats, a host of marine services on offer and best of all a wonderfully scenic cruising area in which to enjoy being afloat. Setting out from one of Ayrshire's marinas you can take advantage of a host of wonderfully scenic destinationsnranging from sheltered bays to busy fishing harbours. It is this shelter which makes this part of Scotland ideal for holiday sailors.
Travelling further afield and the Clyde’s long lochs penetrate deep into the Highland landscapes, whilst off the Ayrshire coast you will come across a scatter of islands, each of different size and character. Arran, large and mountainous; Bute, smaller and more pastoral, whilst the small islands of Great and Little Cumbrae can be circumnavigated in an afternoon.
