Tour Ayr

Ayr is a town located on Ayr Bay, on the Firth of Clyde, at the mouth of the River Ayr, 12 miles southwest of Kilmarnock. It is a former royal burgh and county town of Ayrshire, now administrative centre of South Ayrshire Council. It has varied industries and relies heavily on tourism. Its historically important harbour is still used for the export of coal from the Ayrshire opencast sites. In the 1650s Cromwell’s Model Army built a citadel, and the Auld Kirk of Ayr dates from the same period.

The Auld Brig of Ayr dates from 1491, and the splendid steeple of the Town Buildings was built 1827-1832 by Thomas Hamilton. Robert Burns, born in nearby Alloway, has strong links with the town, and is commemorated in a statue in Burns Statue Square. Ayr Racecourse is the home of the Scottish Grand National. Ayr Gorge Woodlands, by the River Ayr, is a semi—natural woodland dominated by oak and some coniferous plantation. Parks of South Ayrshire.
