I visited Kilmarnock in the past in context of an ancestry themed tour. In essence, Kilmarnock grew rapidly during the time of the Industrial Revolution (19th century) with prosperity generated through a wide range of industries including Textiles, Heavy Engineering, Carpet Manufacturing, Railway Manufacturing, and ‘Johnnie Walker’ Whisky (bottling plant). Unfortunately, most of these industries are either defunct or operating at a shadow of their former size. This decline has, inevitably, impacted on the town which is looking to ‘reinvent’ itself.
The town has a popular football (soccer) club which is a member of the Premier League, a grouping of Scotland’s top-ranked teams.
Overall, Kilmarnock has some interesting architecture to supplement its industrial history.
Elsewhere today, I have been working on various tour enquiries including self-drive.
