Muirkirk

Towns & Villages

    Auchinleck is small village sitting a mile north west of Cumnock and 5 miles south east of Mauchline in East Ayrshire.

    Situated between Cumnock and Glenbuck on the A70, at one time it was a hive of coal and iron industry, now the area surrounding Muirkirk is of scenic beauty and is a great place for walking and enjoying nature.

    To the west is the site of the Battle of Airds Moss, fought in 1680 and marked by a memorial. A Covenanting army was heavily defeated by Government troops. Just south of the town, and along an unmarked road, is a small monument to John Loudon McAdam the road builder, who owned a tar works in the vicinity.
