[one_sixth] [/one_sixth] [five_sixth_last] For great pints of real ale try Geordie’s Byre (103 Main St, Wallacetown, Ayr, KA8 8BU) – it’s well off the tourist trail and frequently gets awards from CAMRA for its real ales – or the bar of the Ayr Brewing Company – a micro brewery in the back of the GlenPark Hotel (5 Racecourse Road, Ayr, KA7 2DG).

If you like the beer you can bring bottles or a pin back with you – but leave the pin a couple of days to settle.[/five_sixth_last]
