Ayrshire & Arran

Ayrshire is in SW Scotland, on the shores of the Firth of Clyde. Its principal towns include Ayr, Kilmarnock and Irvine.The area became part of the Kingdom of Scotland during the 11th century. In 1263, the Scots successfully drove off of the Norwegian leidang--army at the Battle of Largs. The Isle of Arran  is the largest island in the Firth of Clyde. Arran is divided into highland and lowland areas by the Highland Boundary Fault so is a "geologist's paradise". Arran has been continuously inhabited since the early Neolithic period, and numerous prehistoric remains have been found. From the 6th century onwards, Goidelic speaking peoples from Ireland colonised the island and it became a centre of religious activity. During the troubled Viking Age, Arran became the property of the Norwegian crown before becoming formally absorbed by the kingdom of Scotland in the 13th century. The 19th century "clearances"  led to significant depopulation and the end of the Gaelic language and way of life. Please see our detailed 1775 maps by Armstrong at time of Robert Burns
