West Kilbride is a small town in Ayrshire on the Clyde coast of southwest Scotland. It was traditionally a weaving, potato-growing and sheep-farming town, expanding when the railway arrived in 1878, to grow into nearby Seamill and Portencross. In the 21st C it's sought to distinguish itself as an arts & crafts centre, with partial success, and to distance itself from the industrial complex of Hunterston just north. There a fabulous Celtic brooch was found, dating to 700 AD and now in the NMS in Edinburgh; but Hunterston is better known for its nuclear reactors, which you can visit.
