Friends, I offer STRONG counter-opinion to Sharryayr's review.

If you want a comprehensive trip through the best of what Scotch whisky has to offer, Robbies is the place. Robin is extremely knowledgeable, personable and welcoming. Don't pass an opportunity to visit when in Ayr.

This shop is a gem. The owner, I think he said his name was Robin, was a great host and has extensive knowledge of all things whisky. The shop has an excellent choice, from relatively cheap to very expensive, depending on your taste and purse....More
