Replacement bus services are in place and Scotrail are updating as the weather changes.

Scotrail said: "We’ve overhead line damage in the Barassie area which means we’re unable to operate our trains to/from Ayr, therefore trains from Glasgow to Ayr will terminate at Irvine and trains from Ayr to Glasgow will start at Irvine.
