Ayr Racecourse
Come racing at Ayr and enjoy a great day out at Scotland’s top racing venue. Throughout 2003 Ayr stages 25 days racing, both National Hunt and Flat, providing all year round entertainment and top sporting action.

Walking and Cycling
Ayrshire and Arran are great places to bring your walking boots or bike and head off into the open countryside. Walkers have a choice of hill walking and rambling, while Arran poses greater challenges of ridge walking and mountaineering. The National Cycling Network has routes in Ayrshire, passing through some of the most scenic countryside, and making use of off the road tracks and waterside paths wherever possible.

If fishing takes your fancy, the mighty river Stincher has prime salmon beats and has admirable back-up from Girvan, Doon and Ayr. There are also dozens of remote lochs which largely remain unfished.
