Troon is the main spot for kitesurfing in west central Scotland. The Troon and Barassie beaches are not found on the guides map but are about 50 miles north of Stranrear near the popular coastal town of Ayr. The Troon South beach is vast and sandy with plenty of room for everyone and a good friendly vibe. The town which is about 400 yards along a promenade has plenty of cafes and shops to keep families entertained.
South through to Westerly
There is a free public car park at the beach with the entrance just past royal Troon golf course. It can be busy at the weekends through spring and summer with beach goers and best to get there early..
If the wind is strong coupled to a large tide then at high tide there might only be a little bit of beach left to launch and land so be aware of tide times.
