With a population of nearly 45,000, Kilmarnock was once home to many companies that specialised in textiles and engineering. Kilmarnock is in the south west of Scotland and is otherwise known as 'Killie' by locals. It was also the first place in the world to print the works of Robert Burns.
Today, Kilmarnock has evolved from the early industries which it once had and was recently the headquarters of Johnnie Walker whisky. It has experienced significant regeneration, especially as many cafes and restaurants are now in Kilmarnock.
The upgrading of the A77 route from Glasgow to Kilmarnock as well as the construction of the M77 motorway has meant that travelling to and from these two locations is very easy. Upon arriving in Kilmarnock, the latest game which Kilmarnock FC are playing at Rugby Park could be enjoyed as well as visiting period buildings which originate from as far back as the 17th century.
