Eglinton Country Park

Eglinton Country Park comprises part of the estate surrounding Eglinton Castle, between Irvine and Kilwinning. The foundation stone for the new castle was laid in 1797.

The castle fell into ruin after the roof was removed in 1925 and it was used in WWII for gunnery and explosives practice during World War II. What remained was retrenched in 1973 to what remains today.
