Muirkirk Heritage Layby
Muirkirk Heritage Layby can be found by the side of the A70 at the western end of the village.
Among the people commemorated are John Loudon MacAdam, local poets, miners, Tibbie Pagan, and the Covenanters. A notice boards provide information and a cairn commemorates the local Covenanter martyrs.
In the layby you may find the The Pitheid Snack Van which serves hot and cold snacks. Open six days a week, 7-3, Monday to Saturday. Reputedly the best breakfast in East Ayrshire! - but this website could not possibly comment !
