Scottish Independent escorts and escort agencies in Irvine, North Ayrshire
Irvine is a new town on the Firth of Clyde, North Ayshire, Scotland.
The town used to be the home of poet Robert Burns. Two streets are named after the great man, Burns Street and Burns Crescent. Mary Queen of Scots stayed briefly at Seagate Castle. To this day there is a yearly festival called Marymass, held in the town.
The harbour in Irvine used to be one of the most prominent ports in Scotland. Sadly, as Glasgow, Greenock and Port Glasgow achieved higher prominence as ports, the harbour went into decline. Irvine harbour is now officially closed as a commercial port and houses a small number of privately owned craft. It is also home to part of the Scottish Maritime Museum which has numerous vessels on display.
The hulk of the historic clipper ship, City of Adelaide was moved to dry dock in the inner harbour in 1992. As of 2012, there are plans for it to be moved to Adelaide, South Australia for conservation and display.
Irvine is well served with numerous transport links. The railway station lies at the west end of the town on the main line between Stranrear and Glasgow. Stagecoach West Scotland operate a comprehensive local bus service as well as frequent services to Ardossan, Greenock, Kilmarnock, Ayr, Troon and Glasgow.
Irvine is the birthplace of present Deputy First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon and former First Minister, Jack McConnell.
