Today, I visited Ayr. Prime reason to meet a contact with a view to promoting golfing tours. Weather was OK so I took the opportunity to take some pics. Ayr is quite interesting and very photogenic.

Here are some beach scenes; first one is looking NW towards Arran.



The Pavilion began life as an entertainments hall and is now a somewhat tacky entertainment centre called Pirate Pete’s. Interesting architecture. Better suited to Blackpool.


War memorial with County Buildings in the Background. Latter are interesting architecturally and date from 1931.

View up the Ayr river. I like the symmetry of this pic.

These are pics of the Andrew Carnegie library, one of many in Scotland. New World money to stimulate Old World intellects!!


More views of Ayr from the river.



View of town hall on Sandgate Street.
Tam O’Shanter pub. Note thatched roof. Rabbie Burns was born nearby.

View of town centre

A very patriotic pub. No doubt totally unconnected with the upcoming Scotland:Italy football (soccer) match!

Railway station.
