The Clyde resort of Troon is a tidy and affluent centre, and home of the Royal golf course where the British Open has been played many times. The beach is one of the biggest in Scotland with shallows which stretch far out. A new catamaran service to Ireland has recently been added to the harbour. Just off-shore is Lady Isle, a bird sanctuary.
