Fairlie

towns.jpg

Fairlie is a small village situated on the North Ayrshire coast, approximately 3 miles south of Largs.

It is a charming village with a natural beauty, nestling between hills to the East and the Firth of Clyde to the West, looking directly towards the Cumbraes, two small islands, just off Fairlie. Fairlie also has a magnificent view of the Isle of Arran.

According to ancient records it would appear that Fairlie developed as a fishing village, as it had a good, sheltered anchorage that was fully used in the 16th century. Weaving also began to help the prosperity of the village as the demand for Paisley shawls increased.

Fairlie now, is a quiet residential place, with an ever-changing population of commuters and pensioners. It still has a Railway Station, a Church, a Hotel, a Post Office and a handful of small shops.
