Select the area of the South West that you wish to explore using the menu tabs below.
The former county of Ayrshire and the island of Arran became part of Strathclyde Region following the local government re-organisation in 1975. At that time there were four distinct district authorities providing local services. Education was a regional function but most cultural services were provided by the District Councils.
Many artists, makers and performers in South and East Ayrshire have maintained close links with the neighbouring district of Dumfries and Galloway. The Dumfries and Galloway tab provides links to key facilities in that area.
