   Living in Ayr


Ayr is a large coastal town in Ayrshire located on the south western coast of Scotland.

Ayr is one of the largest retail centres along the south of Scotland, and in 2014 was voted as the UK’s second healthiest town centre by the Royal Society for Public Health, largely the result of Ayr’s shopping centres and lively high street. 

For things to see and do in Ayr, those living in town have the joy of being able to visit the beach, or just 30 minutes away from the town, residents can pay a visit to the Galloway Forest Park. The park is home to ancient woodland and wildlife, and visitors can set off on a woodland walk and be rewarded with stunning views of the surrounding mountains and loch. The town is also home to Ayr racecourse, which holds the Scottish Grand National, as well as several public golf courses. Ayr is also rightly proud of its connection to Robert Burns - the Scottish poet and lyricist who is today celebrated worldwide. Burns was born on the outskirts of the town in Alloway, and both his birthplace and the museum dedicated to him can be visited by both residents and visitors alike. 

Ayr is also well suited to those with an eye for education facilities, and is home to nurseries, primary and secondary schools, as well as colleges and an adult learning centre. As such the town is a great location for those looking to move with children of any age. 

The town is also well connected, with several major motorway systems closeby. The A79 is the main road running through the town and connects it with Preswick and the airport there. The A70 also runs from Ayr to Edinburgh. Ayr is also well serviced by rail, and the station sees regular trains run through to central Glasgow, Edinburgh and Kilmarnock.
