Ayr County Show, 10 May 2014

This year’s Ayr county Show, held at Ayr Racecourse was very well attended with a wealth of displays in the Taste Ayrshire marquee ranging from Cook School demonstrations, Rattray’s Whisky Experience with Barwhey’s Cheese, Simpsinns Restaurants and Hotels and the Round Square Coffee Roastery to name just a few. Homemade tablet and shortbread attracted many visitors to the Ayrshire Bed and Breakfast Association (ABBA) stand where members from Bay View, Cherries, Burnside, Thistleneuk and Ayrs and Graces were on hand to provide information on Bed and Breakfast accommodation throughout Ayrshire. In addition two new B&B members signed up to join ABBA as they could clearly see the benefits of collaborative working which takes the ABBA membership to over 50 B&Bs throughout Ayrshire and Arran.
