Ayr, Carrick, and Cumnock is a county constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It was created for the 2005 general election from parts of the old Ayr and Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley constituencies.

Boundaries

Approximately two-thirds of the former Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley constituency was attached to a third of the marginal Ayr seat to form this new Westminster constituency. Ayr is a muddled mix of council estates and affluent middle-class areas. Added to the town is an expanse of former mining villages all loyal to socialist values. The rural parts of Carrick and the coastal areas have supported Conservative candidates in local elections.

Members of Parliament

2005 – "present": Sandra Osborne, (Labour)
