Tour Scotland Video Of Old Photographs Of Glengarnock

Tour Scotland video of old photographs of Glengarnock in North Ayrshire, Scotland. The River Garnock flows through the village, but the name Glen Garnock applies to the ravine at Glengarnock Castle two miles to the north. The village is in the Garnock Valley area and is approximately 18.5 miles away from Glasgow. The main employment in the village came, historically, from the steelworks which existed on the shores of nearby Kilbirnie Loch. During the course of its life, the Iron Works there were owned by Merry and Cunninghame, Colvilles, and British Steel, finally closing in the early nineteen eighties. One of the first libraries in North Ayrshire was formed by Mr William Rabey who opened a Reading room at the Steel Works. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
