Solicitors in Ayr
Ayr is the largest town in Ayrshire and obtained its royal burgh status in 1205. Close to Ayr is Prestwick, which has become well known because of its association with golf. Also nearby is Glasgow Prestwick Airport which offers Ayr fast and convenient transport links.
The early history of Ayr followed that of many towns which were transformed by the Industrial Revolution. Coal exports and shipbuilding were centered on the town. However, Ayr did not industrialise as other towns did during this period. The town in the 20th century continues to be relatively small by modern standards.
As Ayr is a coastal town its prosperity has always been linked to the River Ayr that flows through the Firth of Clyde. The north side of the city still operates as a commercial port. As such, the legal services you can expect from solicitors in Ayr follow the maritime industries that now dominate the city. The city has always had a vibrant retail base. This has meant that the legal services provided by solicitors in Ayr will also include services linked to the retail sector.
