Hire Ian, your personal holiday guide

We proudly support the Galloway and Southern Ayrshire Biosphere.
Ian, Tig Cottage's personal holiday guide

South Ayrshire and its surrounding area is absolutely bursting with things to do, and activities to suit every traveller, and every budget. We've put together a guidebook all about it that you can find here.

But we get that researching stuff to do is not everyone's cup of tea. 

Sometimes, you just want some personal help. Someone who knows the area, and knows what's good, what's bad, and what's an absolutely must see, just for you. Well, we have just the person you need!

Introducing Ian, Your Personal Trip Advisor!

Ian knows this beautiful area incredibly well, including great locations for you and your dog. So rather than spending time on your holiday having the inevitable "where shall we go today?" conversation, Ian is here to help you plan exactly what to do!

How to hire Ian, your South Ayrshire Personal Trip Advisor.

Ian can visit you at Tig on the first evening of your stay, and have a chat with you about what you're looking for and suggest locations and destinations and activities in South Ayrshire, personalised for you and your holiday needs. 

All you need to do is message us when you book to say you'd like to hire Ian! Simple!

The big question: how much does it cost to hire Ian? 

Of course, you're not actually paying to just to hire Ian. You're paying to maximise your time on holiday, avoid missed opportunities (nothing worse than spotting that fabulous destination when you're on the way home!) and aimless driving and those horrible little arguments about where is best to go. All avoided, by hiring only £20 an hour (although he'll probably also ask for a cup of tea, but teabags are provided at Tig anyway!)

If you've already booked your stay at Tig, and you'd like to hire Ian, call us on 07912 682 412 and lets arrange it now!
