ONE OF MY FAVOURITES
This one of my favourite places in Ayr to sit and pass some time with a good book. The building is the County Buildings originally the home of Ayrshire County Council and now the offices of South Ayrshire council. The buildings were built in 1931 on the site of Ayr Jail and opened by King George VI. The sunken gardens in front is the site of the memorial to the men of the Royal Scots Fusiliers who died in World War Two. The regiment were based in Ayr for many years in the now demolished Churchill barracks.
