Town of Ayr
The town of Ayr, with a population of about 60,000, is situated on the Firth of Clyde in south west Scotland. Although traditionally the county town of Ayrshire, since 1996 it has formed part of South Ayrshire, a unitary council region. From 1975 to 1996, the area covered by South Ayrshire was known as Kyle and Carrick, and was a district within the now defunct Strathclyde Region.
Ayr Jewish Community
Ayr had a small Jewish community from the early twentieth century. It also had Scotland's only kosher hotel, which closed (with the synagogue) in the 1970s.
