Towns & Villages

    The town of Kilwinning lies by the River Garnock, 5 miles south of Ardrossan and 3 miles north of Irvine on the North Ayrshire coast.

    The town dates back to the eighth century, when St Winning founded a church here. There is also a ruined 12th century abbey found in Kilwinning.

    The Museum of Ayrshire Country Life and Costume is found within Dalgarven Mill, which dates back to 1640. The museum is home to a unique collection of agricultural machinery, tools and photographs, and you can stop for a bite to eat in the Miller’s Kitchen. A variety of dining options can also be enjoyed in the town’s cafés and restaurants.
