Towns & Villages

    Barr is a picturesque community in rural Ayrshire located about 8 miles inland from the town of Girvan on the B734.

    Surrounded by dramatic scenery, the conservation village sits in the Stinchar Valley at the place where the Water of Gregg and the River Stinchar meet, locally known as The Pot.

    Away from the beaten track, Barr offers a relaxing retreat to those seeking to unwind and wildlife is also abundant. It is perfectly positioned on the edge of the Carrick Forest , and ideal as a base for outdoor pursuits from hillwalking and hiking, cycling and mountain biking to fishing, golfing and bird watching.

    Food is available in the family run Kings Arms Hotel in the village, and the Barr Community Store stocks a wide selection of goods as well as having  a post office and cafe on the premises.
