The A70 is closed at Glespin next week because of road works between there and Glenbuck.

The Roads Alliance recommends those travelling from the south who would normally use the A70 either take the A76 Dumfries roads to Ayr or alternatively the A71 which would mean taking the junction after the one for the A70.

The road will be back to normal from December 9.

Contact Owners & Trainers in advance for Badge/Lunch Bookings and Accommodation at our on-site Western House Hotel

    Ayr is up there with the very best in treating owners and was the first to introduce a full, sit down meal for owners and trainers at Western House and sometimes they don't get the credit they deserve for this.
