Troon is a town that really surprised me when I visited. It’s small, quaint has good ice cream and seems like a great place to just relax and they have golf. Plus. its an easy walk from the train station. And it’s a golfer’s paradise as its home to the Royal Troon Golf Club. As a matter of fact, this entire Scottish coast is a golfer’s paradise.
