Here is my best explanation:

'suppose' is the definition.
(synonyms)

'the southern part of ayrshire' is the wordplay.
'the southern' becomes 's' (abbreviation).
'part of ayrshire' becomes 'ay' (I can't justify this - if you can you should give a lot more credence to this answer).
's'+'ay'='SAY'

'it's' is the link.
