Country inn accommodation in Ayrshire and Burns Country

Stair is really an area rather than a village containing the Inn, a delightful country church, and a sprinkling of lovely country cottages and residencies. Stair nestles at the bottom of a glen beside the river Ayr, set in the idyllic surroundings of the East Ayrshire countryside.

Stair has a number of attractions of historical interest. Stair House built in the 17th century is one of the loveliest houses in Scotland. It has links with Robert Burns. Its interior is illustrated in the character of the many Scottish traits found in houses of this era.

A good vantage point to view its beautiful exterior is from Stair Bridge.

We are only 6 miles east from the town of Ayr, and from Prestwick Airport - and 4 miles west of Mauchline.

The Inn was built around 1700 and was a place for farmers to meet and sell their cattle, this was before the county market was built in Ayr.
