Just back from the Glasgow fair Monday meeting and was disappointed as, although the day was good, there is potential for Ayr racecourse to be so much better. On approaching the venue there were no sign posts to indicate where the car parks are. You...More

Scotland's premier racecourse has many meetings both on the Flat and under National Hunt rules. Access to the parade ring allows a good look at the horses before the race and the view from the grandstand is excellent.

Visited Ayr races with some friends. I can't claim to be anything of an expert on race courses, but the facilities seemed perfectly adequate, and all the staff were friendly and helpful to us novices!

Was a warm day and racing was great, however the facilities were not great. Not a busy day but the food choices were poor and the bar staff were atrocious ( probably just badly trained). Will not rush back.

Not as bad as some racecourses I've been to but not more expensive than a pub.
