Scotland's Best B&Bs

Wildlife in Ayrshire and Arran

The coasts of Ayrshire and the Isle of Arran are ideal for wildlife watching with so many sea birds and marine mammals.

Ailsa Craig

This spectacular rock lying off the Ayrshire coast, is famously home to a colony of 40,000 gannets. Fighting for space on the rock are guillemots, razorbills and kittiwakes. You can’t land on the Island but you can take a boat trip around it weather permitting.
