Situated in the town centre within the historic building, Lady Cathcart House. Ayr is a pretty seaside town in the heart of Burns' Country. Our many attractions include the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum and Culzean Castle. Ayr also has a wide choice of places to eat and drink - from pub lunches to top class restaurants. Our Information experts have a wealth of local knowledge and can help visitors with accommodation bookings locally and nationally. We can also book tickets for CityLink buses and Cal Mac ferries. We sell a selection of gifts including locally made products.

Just the place to come for useful information on Ayrshire and the rest of Scotland. The staff are very talented and able to give lots of information, Pitty the shop is so small and tucked away in the Sandgate.
