Roundsquare Roastery – Coffee as it should be!

There’s nothing better than the aroma of freshly ground coffee….

su_casa Pop into Roundsquare Roastery in Lorne Arcade, Ayr and the coffee shop Su Casa (they work together). Immediately the coffee smell hits you – and you’re hooked. Now you can buy freshly ground coffee in sealed bags. They grind to order, so you know it could not be fresher. Roundsquare is the only place in Ayrshire where you can buy this coffee, which is ethically sourced under the Direct Trade policy. ABBA members get a discount!


Dumfries House is changing…

walled_garden_v2_1000 bridge_north_1000You may have visited Dumfries House since Prince Charles started the project of opening the house and estate to the public. But in the last year, there has been a tremendous amount of work done in the walled garden and arboretum. Wander around the estate and admire the 300 year old trees and the magnificent Adam bridge, which has now been restored. Much of the work has been done by local volunteers.

Stay overnight at the Dumfries House Lodge, the on-site guest house or try a farm B&B, Laigh Tarbeg, only 4 miles away. If you would like something different, look up the Old School Dalleagles – a beautiful B&B set in the rolling hills just 9 miles away. Very spacious with dinner available in the evenings.
