In Alloway, start your history toir at the Burns Cottage and Museum. It is a low, thatched house where the poet Robert Burns was born on 25 January 1759 and spent the first seven years of his life. The museum contains original manuscripts, books, paintings and other memorabilia, plus a brief history of his life. Nearby is the Tam o' Shanter Experience, a modern building housing an audio-visual theatre telling the story of Tam o' Shanter. Across the road are the ruins of Alloway Kirk, where Robert Burns' father, William, is buried. The Brig o' Doon, the 13th century humpbacked bridge, stands nearby, spanning the River Doon. Overlooking the bridge is the ostentatious Burns Monument, a neo-classical temple, which houses a display. There are statues of various Burns characters in the gardens.

In Waterside is the Dunaskin Heritage Centre, about 12 miles south of Ayr. It deals with the iron-working heritage of the area and a restored iron worker's cottage. It also illustrates the history of mining in the area.

The Royal Dundonald Castle lies between Irvine and Kilmarnock and was the first home of the Stuart kings, built in 1371 by Robert II. The Great Hall on the top floor is now roofless, but the Lower Hall features a fine example of a medieval barrel-vaulted ceiling, and there is a small dungeon below it. Outside, the western wall of the castle features five stone carved heraldic shields which are among the oldest in the country. Sitting on a cliff top the views from the castle are stunning.

Culzean Castle and Country Park is a beautifully romantic 18th century castle built by Robert Adams, the renowned Scottish architect. Culzean is set in a park of over 500 acres in size, with a swan pond, walled gardens, and adventure playground. The castle commands wonderful views from its cliff top location. Part of this castle is also an exclusive hotel now.

The famous Ayr Racecourse, about 2 miles north of the town centre, and is open year-round. Races are usually held Friday, Saturday, and Monday. The Scottish Grand National is held here every year in April.
