The Isle of Arran in Scotland from the mainland - beyond that is the Mull of Kintyre.

Kilwinning Stevenston Saltcoats Ardrossan

I was born and grew up in Ardrossan before migrating to Australia in 1964 with my wife who is a native of Stevenston. When the curse that is breast cancer hit her we took stock, and decided to retired to the beachfront - we love it. I maintain as a hobby the threetowners website for Ardrossan, Saltcoats, Stevenston and surrounds.

Kilwinning in Ayrshire is where our McCallum family settled after returning to Scotland from Ireland in the 1850s.  Over time some of the family moved to the three adjoining coastal towns of Stevenston, Saltcoats and Ardrossan, others remained in the Kilwinning and some moved to the Irvine area.  Our great great grandparents Thomas McCallum and his wife Margaret Boyd whose family go way back to the 1700s in Kilwinning are buried in Irvine.
