Irvine

Towns & Villages

    Irvine is an industrial town on the west coast of Scotland in North Ayrshire.

    Located 26 miles south of Glasgow, Irvine was made a Royal Burgh in 1372 by Robert II, and is now a busy town with important historical and maritime connections. Its harbour became a major west coast seaport and now houses the main site of the Scottish Maritime Museum.

    The town enjoys a vibrant community spirit, with an active Burns Club (the oldest in Scotland), Trade Guilds and community council. Robert Burns worked here in a 'heckling shed' in 1781- 1782. The Moor, on Kilwinning Road, was the site of the first ever horse racing meeting, in the 17th century.
