Getting there & around

Ayr is 33 miles from Glasgow and is Ayrshire’s major transport hub. The main bus operator in the area is Stagecoach Western (613500) – its very frequent X77 service (Monday to Saturday) from Glasgow to Ayr costs £4.50 (one hour). It also runs buses from Ayr to Stranraer (£6.50, two hours, four to eight daily), Greenock (£6.40, 1¾ hours, every 20 minutes Monday to Saturday, two Sunday), Largs (£4.80, 1¼ hours, every 20 minutes Monday to Saturday, two Sunday) and Dumfries (£5.30, 2¼ hours, five to seven daily).

The Ayr Dayrider (£3.40) allows one day’s unlimited travel in and around Ayr, including Alloway, from 9am.

There are at least two trains an hour that run from Glasgow Central station to Ayr (£6.20, 50 minutes), and some trains continue south from Ayr to Stranraer (£11.70, 1½ hours).
