Reviewed By Scotgirl2015 - Glasgow, United Kingdom

I recently visited Vikingar.
It was very interesting. The guide was very informative. He spoke in detail about the Viking life, living, religion & gods.
There was a lot to see & it was quite hands on.
It was value for money the only downfall was the two reception staff were quite rude & ignorant but the tour guide was great.
Good for a visit

Kelburn Castle and Country Centre

Reviewed By Geoff M - Warrington, United Kingdom

The castle was booked for a special birthday party and couldn't have been better. The historic surroundings were ideal, the roaring fire very welcome and the service and birthday fare excellent. The dining room was perfect for the 50 guests invited and the separate function room ideal for the birthday festivities.

Portencross Castle

Reviewed By ActRegular_traveller - Canberra, Australia

We'd seen a sign to "Craft Village", wondered what that was all about & detoured into West Kilbride. While wandering about there we dropped into the Barony Centre, which was pretty much empty, but a volunteer there told us about Portencross Castle nearby & gave us a brochure. We dropped down without any expectations.
What a nice surprise! The little 12th C castle is in a very picturesque location, with a tiny harbour and views to the Islands. We were impressed by the clarity of the water. The volunteers were happy to see us mid-week as we were the only ones there. I was interested to learn that the cannon lying in the grass outside was a genuine Armada cannon, salvaged from offshore. The castle is quite interesting with illustrations and some old photos showing how things might have been - it has been a ruin since the 1700's but since Cromwell left it alone it was probably derelict before then. The volunteers were extremely helpful and enthusiastic and answered all our questions. We were shown where the unexcavated bottle dungeon is (behind a door that is usually propped open). After looking around inside we wandered along the shore a bit, taking some photos of the small working harbour a few hundred metres along the coast.
Free parking & free entry. A hidden gem & very uncommercial. We left a donation - it was worth it.

Skelmorlie Golf Club

Reviewed By Robert S - Paisley, United Kingdom

Visited this wonderful & extremely friendly course yet again today ... even though it's very early in the year & despite the recent very heavy rainfall & frosts it's in great condition ... ALL 18 Greens are on!
Today, for the 1st time, we encountered this courses true defence ... Strong Wind! The course plays completely differently under these conditions ... all holes are challenging but the 'Back 9' really come into their own when the wind's blowing ... Holes 10 till 14 give you a real battle to keep your scores down no matter how low your Handicap or how well you're playing ... it absolutely howls across these holes!!!
I really can't Recommend this course Highly enough no matter what time of year you choose to play it!!!
