A warm welcome to the website of Ayrshire & Wigtownshire CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale.  Geographically, our branch is located in South West Scotland and  covers an area of approximately 1600 square miles (4185 km²)

We have almost 600 members who are passionate about pub-going and real ale while having fun at the same time.  We are a very active branch with regular social activities and a successful festival which is held in early October each year.  In addition, we publish a multi-award winning branch magazine called Full Pints with issues printed and distributed quarterly. 

Please have a look around our website or better still come and join us in a pub for a beer or two.
