Irvine is on Scotland's West Coast, 25 miles south of Glasgow and 10 miles north of Prestwick Airport, and is only 90 minutes drive from Edinburgh. Irvine is served by a half-hourly train service from Ayr or Glasgow, and the Burns Club is within walking or taxi distance of the station.
Irvine is only a 30-minute journey from Burns Cottage and the Burns National Heritage Park at Alloway, so you can easily include us in your Ayrshire visit. Also in Irvine is the Heckling Shed where Burns worked and the house where he stayed in 1781. Those interested in ships may also wish to make time for the Scottish Maritime Museum at Irvine harbour.
