Muirkirk

towns.jpg

The village of Muirkirk is a historical Covenanter town located on the eastern edge of Ayrshire, Scotland.

From the tiny settlement of Garan, through the Moor Kirk o' Kyle, over time Muirkirk has been a centre of Christianity with the Covenanters, helping ensure religious and social freedom for Scotland's people. Muirkirk has also been a major coaching halt on the main road south from Glasgow, a place of poetry with Tibbie Pagan and John Lapraik, visited by Robert Burns and a centre of strategic industry with rail connections serving iron and coal production.
