Working at South Ayrshire Council
South Ayrshire has a wonderful environment that sets it apart from other parts of
Scotland and makes it an extremely desirable place to live in, work in and visit.
Situated in the South West of Scotland on the beautiful Clyde Coast, the area is
home to around 112,000 people. While the majority of residents live in the coastal
towns of Troon, Prestwick and Ayr, around one third live in the smaller towns of
Maybole and Girvan or in rural areas stretching from Symington in the North to
Ballantrae and Loch Ryan in the South.
South Ayrshire possesses beautiful scenery, both coastal and rural, as well as a
wealth of cultural heritage, castles and historic buildings. These include Culzean
Castle and Country Park near Maybole and the Robert Burns Birthplace and Museum and
Burns Cottage in Alloway.
South Ayrshire offers an excellent transport infrastructure with easy access to Glasgow
by road and rail. For those wishing to travel further afield, Prestwick International
Airport offers a wide range of national and international links.
Add to this an abundance of high quality housing, from modern to traditional, urban to
rural and coastal, and South Ayrshire is the ideal place to live and work.
