On Scotland's western coast, Girvan is a small burgh with lots of charm. Similarly to many other UK seaside holiday resorts, it became more popular with tourists after getting its own train station. Girvan's colourful flower displays attract a lot of attention, and the local area boasts at least 20 castles to explore.
After getting the ferry to Scotland from Northern Ireland, a stopover in one of Girvan's hotels can be quite convenient.
