Ayr in Scotland. Paul's ancestors are from Scotland and he had been here before chasing his roots and meeting cousins he had never seen. So he was our tour guide for this part of our holiday. He took us on a scenic route which was windy but pretty. We arrived in Ayr about 2.00pm and Paul took us to the B&B where they had stayed before and had been owned by his cousin.
