The site is located a short distance from the river at Ayr and alongside the University development in the same area. A path leads along the river and to a series of bridges which lead across to the main part of the old town and the docks and beach front of Ayr. The river path is easlily reached form the site, although after navigation through University property (car parks). It is a nice walk into town. Access to the site with outfit is comparatively easy although some care is needed as travel is through some of the busier parts of the town's road network and round abouts. The whole area is pleasant with some space for dog walking outside the site. Overall a pleasant experience on site although the layout of the site does seem to give it a congested/closed in sort of feel about it. Site itself is clean and well kept and comfortable to be in. Wardens are pleasant and helpful. I would use the site again for a short visit to the town and local area but would not remain for a longer stay due to the congested feel of the site and lack of a dog walk. Definitely recommend for a town visit and perhaps to visit Trumps Golf Fantasia on the road to Girvan.
