Ayr is Scotland’s Premier Racecourse and a Visit Scotland 5* Attraction

Ayr Racecourse is Scotland’s only Grade 1 track and is known to host some of the best horse racing in Scotland, both in the flat racing and the jumps. The beautifully located course is home to the Coral Scottish Grand National Festival in April and the Ayr Gold Cup Festival in September.

Ayr Racecourse is also renowned for providing some of the finest hospitality at any sporting venue in the UK. 

The Racecourse is also home to a fabulous multi award winning four star Western House Hotel and one of the country’s largest and most unique conference centres. Banquets, gala balls, exhibitions, conferences and car launches are just some of the functions that the well-appointed Princess Royal Conference and Events Centre can host in comfort. There really is something for everyone at Scotland’s premier racecourse.
