Troon

towns.jpg

Troon, in Ayrshire, is situated on the coast, about eight miles north of Ayr and only three miles northwest of Prestwick Airport.

Lying across the Firth of Clyde, the Isle of Arran can easily be seen. Troon is also a port with freight and ferry services to Larne and a yacht marina.

Troon is most famous for its Royal Troon golf course, host to the Open Golf Championship, which is typically held there every seven years.

Troon harbour played a notable part in the development of the town for many years. It was home to the Ailsa Shipbuilding Company, which constructed many vessels for worldwide customers. Recently, the fishing fleet from Ayr moved to Troon harbour and a revitalisation of the abandoned section of the harbour started.

The high speed ferry service operates from Troon harbour to Larne between March to September.
