Where Are We
Troon is located on the Ayrshire coast between the neighbouring towns of Prestwick to the south and Irvine to the north.
If coming from the south follow the A77 to the Monktonhead roundabout, then take the second exit which leads on to the A78. At the next roundabout take the second exit on to the A79 and after 200m turn right on to the B749 which leads into the centre of the town. Follow the signs for the car ferries and this leads into Harbour road. The Yacht Haven is on the right hand side of the road and is entered between two large black gates mounted on yellow sandstone pillars.
If travelling from Glasgow (35 miles) follow the M77/A77 to the Monktonhead roundabout, then follow the instructions above.
If coming from the north follow the A78 past Ardrossan, Saltcoats and Stevenston, then past Irvine before taking the Troon turning which leads on to the B746 to Barassie and Troon.
Troon lies on the main Stranraer to Glasgow line. Trains run from Glasgow to Ayr roughly every half hour, and the journey takes approximately 40 minutes from Glasgow and 10 minutes from Ayr.
