All of this makes Irvine perfect for any tourist interested in social and natural history.

The Scottish Maritime Museum
The Scottish Maritime Museum has two locations, one in Dumbarton and the other in Irvine. The one in Irvine is located at Irvine Harbour and is one of the best sites you can consider visiting while in Irvine. In the museum, you will learn about the importance of maritime history and shipbuilding heritage for the Scottish people. The linthouse Shipyard building, which is now called ‘Cathedral of Engineering’, is home to a collection of vessels including 1940s Clyde Puffer MV Spartan. It is open to visitors who like to immerse themselves in the life of a vessel that was formerly a lifeline for Scottish islands and coastal regions. To take some refreshment during your visit, you can stop by Puffers Café, and savour its well-cooked wholesome food, and high-quality drinks.

Eglinton Country Park, with its play area and lovely surroundings, is a great visit for all seasons of the year. There are three walking trails that extend throughout the whole park, and it provides a great area for exploration. It is a great site for anglers too, providing a beautiful setting for fishing. Its adventure playground is suitable for children 8 years or younger, with a larger area for older children as well. Working with the British Horse Society, the park staff have provided great horse-riding facilities, including parking, mounting blocks and easy-open gates, for responsible horse riders. To eat, there is the Tournament Café, with its homemade soups, which is open 7 days a week.

It has a Romantic Gothic look, with amazing stained glasses, and fascinatingly designed pillars. The height of the building is 51.8m and is situated in the town centre.
