Travel Tips for Ayr

In the winter pack anything warm...

by Raquelle

Depends how you are travelling around. We had a car so we could either take bags or a suitcase. As we were only there for a week we each had a large bag. In the winter anything warm is best. It was chilly when we were there in October. It rained on and off so take an umbrella. Most villages have a general shop where you can buy toiletries. Most towns will have a couple of chemists to get medical supplies.

Ardrossan doesn't have much worth seeing in its own right, although it is going through some regeneration around the marina area.

The main reason to go here is to take a ferry over to the Isle of Arran -somewhere you will no doubt see if you are ANYWHERE near the Ayrshire coastline! Despite living so close for so long its something I have only ever talked about doing but wish to rectify soon!

The grassy area just behind the beach and promenade is known as the Low Green. I'm not sure of the history of it but I believe it has been set aside in some way for public use and can't be built on. So now its a nice area for having ball games, picnics, flying kites and so on.

We had a pleasant week in Ayr in Sept 2005, staying at the Caravan Club Site which is situated right in the Town (but feels like the countryside).
