Girvan in a small resort town in Ayrshire, Scotland, located on the Firth of Clyde facing Ailsa Craig, a prominent rocky outcrop in the Firth. Originally a small village, Girvan expanded in the 1830s to accommodate linen and cotton weavers for the then-booming Scottish textiles industry; as this faded, it became a resort for families from the industrial towns and cities of west-central Scotland.
