East Ayrshire

East Ayrshire

The picturesque area of East Ayrshire stretches from just outside the fringes of Glasgow at its north, to the beautiful Galloway Forest Park and Loch Doon to its south, providing a desirable place to live.

The area’s largest town, Kilmarnock, was once voted the UK’s friendliest shopping town, boasting a range of high street retailers and a large shopping mall. It is also home to several listed and historic buildings, such as the 14th-century Dean Castle, set within Dean Castle Country Park, a perfect place to enjoy a family day trip.

The area has several good schools. These include Stewarton Academy and Kilmarnock Academy — which educated two Nobel Prize winners.

The Scottish football premiership team Kilmarnock FC is also based in the town, while the plentiful countryside and openness of East Ayrshire provides many opportunities for lovers of sport and outdoor pursuits to get involved themselves.

The historic town of Cumnock lies to the south of the area, with Dumfries House, the Castle William scenic vantage point and The Baird Institute museum.

Glasgow is a 20-minute drive away along the M77, while regular trains make commuting into the city a breeze. Edinburgh is also within easy driving distance along the M74.
