A Wee Wander Round Ayr takes the interested resident or visitor on a tour round the historical centre of Ayr, with a detour out to visit the sights at Alloway, where Robert Burns was born. Ayr is an ancient town, established by King William the Lion in 1197 when he erected his ‘New Castle’ there. Over the centuries it has grown to become an important county town, centre for markets and commerce, as well as an important tourist destination. Local historian Dane Love will lead the reader around the important sites in the town, as well as reminding locals of some the places that have changed over the years. The book is illustrated with old pictures, as well as a few that are more up-to-date. A detailed Ordnance Survey map allows the wanderer to find their way about the town.
