It's a long way from Wiltshire!

Ayr is a long way from *most* places ...

I did live in Ayr for three years in the 70s when I was a student but didn't have a bike then so never went out of the town much. There are some different routes from where I live none of them pleasant driving. Mainly I wasn't sure if it's in the sticks, which I hate or near civilisation (pub) so was more concerned about a daily commute. Ayr station has been partly closed recently due to the hotel next door falling down so not sure on the train situation either.

I'm not saying it's remote but their neighbours still paint themselves blue.

From what I remember, Bailey-central is about 10-15mins drive from Ayr town centre.

You're not kidding about the neighbours there is a rumour that Sawney Bean the well known west coast cannibal is still alive and looking for victims.

So, who's going, for what??

I would like to make a neck-through bass on a course in the future.

Carol booked us at Daviot House in Ayr for our first course and we booked direct but got a good rate by telling them we were on a Bailey course - near the centre of Ayr for drinks and food - excellent B&B - good breakfast - friendly hosts.

I did fancy an Exotica based build - but 335 is attractive as well - I should be able to do an Exotica build in my workshop - suppose I could do the Exotica build and take it with me to get it finished by Lewis while I do the 335 course.....   

Need to start saving......

Pretty sure that I stayed there too @frocesterbill, on one of my workshop course visits.  That place was really handy for pubs, restaurants and the beach.

Not that being near the beach was particularly relevant!
