Fullarton Parish Church, Irvine

A former village and burgh of barony, which has become a satellite of the New Town of Irvine, Fullarton lies on the left bank of the River Irvine opposite Irvine and 1 mile (1.5 km) northeast of Irvine Bay. Connected to Irvine by several bridges, including the Rivergate Shopping Mall which stretches over the river. Nearby is Cunninghame House, the headquarters of North Ayrshire Council. Fullarton Parish Church dates from 1838 and was the work of James Ingram (1799 - 1879). Amid a collection of retail, business and industrial parks, Fullarton has a railway station (designated Irvine Station) on the West Coast line from Glasgow to Ayr. There was once a sizeable railway workshop here for the Glasgow & South Western Railway Company. The Scottish Maritime Museum lies on the opposite side of the railway, along with Irvine Beach Park and the long beach-front of Irvine Bay.
