  • Great Sunday car boot sale and market. If your selling, arrive early (before 7) to get a good pitch. If your buying the best stuff is available from 8 - 8.30ish
  • Cold wind outside so spent some time inside watching the races on the plentiful screens. I reckon that the heating was on + air conditioning turned off to encourage you to drink more.. There was not enough seating inside so groups of ladies in their lovely dresses sitting on the floor,management please take note provide more seated areas inside please!!! Drinks overpriced so I will guess that the food was the same. Got to say though the atmosphere was good!
  • Ayr racecourse is one of Scotland's finest sports arena and conference and events centre with a gold star only a few arenas have this and not many in the ayrshire district
  • A fabulous place for a day out. Food was superb. Only drawback where my selections.
  • Popped along for a wedding so I can only comment on the function suite, not the race course itself. The venue was first class and the parking was ample.
