Provost Sloan continued: “South Ayrshire Council has worked closely with Association of British Ports, Ayr to ensure that passengers from cruise liners visit Ayr town centre as well as take bus trips to nearby attractions such as Culzean Castle and Turnberry golf course.
“Our aim is to showcase the very best of the local area and to encourage cruise visitors to come back to Ayrshire and explore this wonderful corner of Scotland for longer and in more depth.”
