Ocean Ports of Call

Ayr - UK, Scotland Highlights:
Robert Burns Centre, Golf Courses, Culzean Castle, Glasgow
Ayr lies on the southern bank of the River Ayr on the Atlantic Coast of Scotland. It is set in the heart of Robert Burns country and has much to commend it. Literary buffs will want to see the parish church where Burns was baptized, as well as the two bridges the poet immortalized in Twa Brigs. Also in town are the 16th-century Loudon Hall and 17th-century Ayr Auld Kirk (church). No place in Scotland is complete without a golf course, and Ayr has three. South of Ayr is Alloway, where Burns was born. Located in the village is the Robert Burns Centre, which houses Burns Cottage (scene of the poet's birth), the Burns Interpretation Centre and Burns Monument and Gardens. From Ayr you can also visit Culzean Castle, perched high above the Firth of Clyde, and considered one of Scotland's' most romantic castles with magnificent gardens. Crossraguel Abbey, Drumlanrig Castle and Threave Gardens are located nearby and Glasgow is only 30 miles away.

Created a royal burgh in 1202, it was the chief Scottish port on the western coast during medieval times until it was superseded by the River Clyde ports to the north. In the 18th century Ayr was a small town but by the 19th century it had become a social centre for the Scottish gentry.
