About Ayr

You’ll find the attractions come in thick and fast in this handsome county town. Firstly, Ayr boasts a fine esplanade and a long arc of golden sand from which beachgoers are treated to beautiful views of the Firth of Clyde. Dotted along the seafront are lovely gardens, crazy golf and a fabulous playpark that will keep the kids entertained for hours.

Then there’s the seaside town’s historic racecourse. The traditional home of the Scottish Grand National has varied, regular fixtures that make it the perfect spot to enjoy a little flutter.

And for Robert Burns fans, Ayr is essential. Scotland’s famous bard was born in the little village of Alloway on the town’s outskirts, and today his childhood cottage houses a museum celebrating his life and work. Elsewhere, you can explore the sights that inspired him and visit an emotive monument and gardens.
