Girvan Beach and harbour

Phone number:


The traditional holiday resort of Girvan dates back to 1668 when it became a municipal burgh incorporated by Charter. Girvan's harbour is a centre of attraction for visitors and offers convenient mooring facilities for visiting yachts. From here, you can set off for a day's sea angling or a pleasure trip around the island of Ailsa Craig, the plug of an extinct volcano and now a bird sanctuary. The town also plays host to the Carrick Festival of Light and the Girvan Traditional Folk Festival every year.
