Visit Prestwick and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Prestwick, South Ayrshire. Famous in this Age of Aviation, Prestwick is an ancient burgh lying immediately North of Ayr, and in fact continuous with it. The Church of St Nicholas (ruined) is thought to date from 1163, but the town probably does not take its name from the priests that served it; rather is Prestwick a reference to the splendid “split” bay on which the town sits. But the present-day Prestwick is, to all Scotland, an international airport of the first rank, dating from 1935 and attaining importance first as the British terminal of the trans-Atlantic ferry service during the Second World War.
There are three 18-hole golf courses, the most famous, “Old Prestwick”, having its origin back in the Middle Ages.
