Best time of the year to visit Ayr 

The Scottish weather can often be unpredictable, but no matter the weather there is always something to enjoy in this part of the world. If it rains then the many museums, halls, and galleries will keep you dry, if the sun shines then the beautiful beaches are a great host to sunbathers and different water sports. During the months of April through to August the average temperature reaches a comfortable 18 Celsius and it is during this time that Ayr becomes popular with tourists and the countryside becomes lively with cyclists, walkers, and horseback riding. 

For the months where it is less crowded and the climate is still pleasant, then the period between March and May is the perfect time to visit Ayr. The weather will have less rainfall than the Winter months, and the cool temperatures, although lower than the summer, will be perfect for walks and days on the beach.
