The Isle of Arran is as integral to Ayrshire as any one of its towns and villages and almost no matter where you are on the mainland there is a chance that you will catch a glimpse of that distinctively shaped island from a distance. Walk along any one of Ayrshires beaches at sunset and you can prepare yourself for the most amazing show provided by the sun dropping behind the island and exploding in colour above.
Ayrshire Connect incorporates all of the businesses on the islands as well as the mainland and this page highlights a selection of those businesses. Click on the links to each of the pages for retail, food and drink, see and do and accommodation. These pages will expand as the site grows so keep popping back to see what else is featured.
