Ailsa Craig and Ayrshire Coast, Scotland

This evening, I am reporting on today’s trip to Dalgarven Mill Museum of Country Life and Costume, near Kilwinning, Ayrshire about 30 miles S.W. of Glasgow in S.W. Scotland.

The journey down provided superb views of the Ayrshire coast, as illustrated above.

This museum has been created from a defunct water powered grain mill dating from Victorian times, although there have been mills on the site since the 13th. century.

The museum has three sections:

  • Country Life Collection.
  • Grain Mill.
  • Costume Collection.

There is also a separate antique shop and a coffee shop.

Overall, a quality experience illustrating the changes in fashions and rural life since the 18th century.
