Travel Tips for Ayr
Newmilns Dry Ski Slope
I go here fairly regularly to snowboard. Obviously its not actually on snow, its a kind of astroturf but it means we can go year round and its a bit more affordable than the indoor snow slope in Glasgow. Plus nearer if you are in the Ayrshire area. We currently pay £8.50 which gives us two hours on the slope & includes board/ski hire, boots, helmut hire. There are also lessons available in both snowboarding and skiing. we hire equipement as part of the price we pay but you can bring your own if you have skis or a snowboard.
AUCHINCRUIVE - GARDENS
Not far from Oswald House there is a walled garden that has some nice areas to wander around. Its not the easiest place to access since the gates nearest the main pathway are all locked and it CAN look shut up. The actual entrance is up a side path just before you reach the side of the garden. I love this one little corner that has this "secret garden" feel to it! :)
This is where I often walk to if I walk from home and feel like a long walk. Follow part of the blue path from the edge of the estate, along the river to the walled garden and then back round to my village :)
Maybole Colliegiate Church
The chapel of St Mary was founded by John Kenedy in 1371, and the asociated college 1 years later. It served to allow prayers to be said for the founder and his family.
Currrently only viewable from outside.
A Seaside Town.....
"......they forgot to close down."
So said Morrisey, but it wasn't about Ayr in particular, just British seaside towns in general. I moved here from York in October 2002 and am originally from Kilmarnock just 10 miles north of Ayr, so I knew what to expect.
