5 Things to Expect when Visiting our Community Space in Troon

Jul 15, 2022 | Community Space, Latest News


We currently have three community spaces in Shawlands, Troon, and Alloa, Scotland.

Our Community Space in Troon opened in November 2018 and was the first of our Community Spaces to have a designated shop area. Residents of Troon, and visitors alike, love to pop in and have a browse, a cuppa, and spend time with our Companionship Dogs. This Community Space can be found on Ayr Street, just a short walk from the beach. Situated in a large unit on ground level, with windows spanning the length of the Community Space, the light and airy feel creates a relaxing atmosphere.


1) A free drink and biscuits for anyone visiting

Anyone can pop in for a free hot drink, water, or diluting juice and a biscuit.


2) Love from our companionship dogs

We have a team of wonderful Companionship Dogs who spend their days in our Community Spaces so that visitors can meet and spend time with them. We also welcome well-behaved dogs to visit with their owners. Being so close to the beach and in such a dog friendly location, our Troon Community Space gets lots of visiting dogs.

3) A lovely shop area

We always have a well-stocked shop in our Troon Community Space, with items available for humans and animals. Why not pop in and see if we have something you’ve been looking for!


4) A friendly chat with our staff and volunteers

Our staff and volunteers love a good chinwag and are great listeners. If you’d like some company, our Community Spaces are the place to be!

5) A Group Dog Walk

Every Friday at 1pm we host a Group Dog Walk along the promenade. All are welcome, you don’t need to be over 60 and you don’t need to have a dog of your own. The group meets in front of South Beach Kiosk just before 1pm. Find out more about our Group Dog Walk here.
