Host Review Score

Paul McLarty
Ayr is a seaside town with a mile of safe sandy beach to enjoy. The town centre is within a 5 minute walk and offers a variety of shops but the restaurants are exceptional. You will be provided with a guide to all the best restaurants in Ayrshire. If you like golf you have come to the right place with about 40 excellent courses in Ayrshire including championship courses. Alternatively you may wish to visit Culzean Castle or Dumfries House. Kids love Pirate Petes adventure area and the Heads of Ayr Farm Park. Plenty to do for all ages.
