The historic town of Ayr, birthplace of Robert Burns in 1759 and home to the world famous birthplace museum dedicated to him, is a former Royal Burgh situated on the west coast of Ayrshire. Famous for Championship Golf Courses and two of Scotland’s most iconic buildings in Culzean Castle and the new Turnberry Hotel Resort nearby, which has hosted the British Open Golf championship on four occasions, Ayr was recognised as the second healthiest town centre in the United Kingdom by the Royal Society for Public Health in 2014.

Living locally in Ayrshire

Besides the Turnberry Resort, the Ayrshire ‘Golf Coast’ includes another famous championship course in the form of Royal Troon - which has long been a favourite destination for important world figures and dignitaries including Eisenhower, who frequented the area to play golf. Ayrshire hosted the first ever open golf championship.

Ayr is the most prominent Town in Ayrshire and home to our local Clyde Property branch. Ayr has a comprehensive range of shops and an abundance of recreational facilities, as well as some fine restaurants and bars, not to mention the famous Ayr racecourse and yacht Marina in Troon.

With Prestwick international Airport on its doorstep and only a 30 minute drive to Glasgow or frequent train service, Ayr certainly is positioned as one of Scotland's most desirable places to live.

Going the Extra Mile – Clyde Property Ayr Working With Our Shawlands Branch

Our team at Clyde Property Ayr recently worked with a client who was looking to relocate to Ayrshire after having moved to Glasgow several years ago.

Ayr branch testimonials

Excellent service

Excellent service from start to finish. Everybody worked very hard to get us into our new home. Thanks everyone!

Sales client, Ayr branch, Sep 2019

We're eternally grateful

Recently bought and sold through Clyde and honestly couldn't fault the service from the whole team. Initial contact with Chelsea to book the viewing of the property we liked and subsequently the valuation of our own, was so professional. Margaret the viewing lady was very helpful at the viewing, answering lots of questions very thoroughly and she was very knowledgeable about the area. Andrew came to do the valuation of our property and it was a pleasure meeting him, we instantly liked what he had to say and what Clyde had to offer for marketing so it made us feel very comfortable selling our home through Clyde. Kirsten and Fiona were very helpful when it came to the negotiating and we achieved well above the home report valuation price. We are now settled very well into our new family home and we're eternally grateful to Clyde Property, Ayr.

I let my property through Clyde for a couple of years. The service I received from Rachel and Lorraine was excellent throughout this time. All enquiries were dealt with in a professional and timeous manner. I would highly recommend Clyde Property's letting service.

Recently rented a property through Clyde and from the first viewing till the day I collected the keys they couldn’t be more helpful, nothings to much bother and any questions or query’s are dealt with quickly and professionally.

Letting client, Ayr branch, Jun 2019

We are giving 5 stars for the service! Very accommodating and friendly staff. All our concerns and requests as tenant were actioned promply. Special thanks to Lorraine Morrison for all the help. Highly recommended.

Letting client, Ayr branch, Jun 2019

The service was first class from start to finish

From the initial contact with Fiona in the Ayr branch, the service was first class from start to finish. Fiona put us in contact with Gavin Hunter in our local Shawlands branch at the time who gave us the best advice from marketing services to positioning the property appropriately in the market. After 24 hours of our first viewings, the flat was sold. Exceptional result and beyond our expections. Not with standing that, Fiona also helped us secure our new home in Ayr, our first home we viewed with Clyde. Can not recommend them highly enough. If you want an estate agent who doesn’t play the cloak and dagger game and is up front in managing your expectations then go with Clyde Property.
