Welcome to the website of Ayrshire & Wigtownshire CAMRA.  Geographically, our branch is located in South West Scotland and  covers an area of approximately 1600 square miles (4185 km²)

Currently, we have in excess of 650 members who are passionate about pub going and real ale.  We are an active branch with regular social activities and a very successful festival which is held in early October each year.  In addition, we publish a multi-award winning branch magazine called Full Pints with four issues printed annually.

Full Pints has retained the title CAMRA National Magazine of the Year.  This is the third win in the space of the last four years and is a fantastic achievement for our branch.  The award was made during the Members’ Weekend in Dundee and magazine editor, Stuart McMahon, was on hand to accept the certificate from National Executive member Lynn Atack.

Ayrshire & Wigtownshire Pub of the Year 2019

Pub of the Year 2019 - The Twa Dugs

Judging over and points tallied, we can now reveal that our branch Pub of the Year for 2019 is The Twa Dugs in West Kilbride.  An amazing achievement for a pub which opened its doors after a major refurbishment early last year.

The presentation of the award will take place on Saturday, 8th June at 14:00.  All members are encouraged to attend.
