Towns & Villages
Auchinleck is a small village in East Ayrshire. The name in Gaelic means "field of flat stones”
The village has been inhabited since at least 1504, with the arrival of the Boswell family when King James IV granted it as a barony to Thomas Boswell. The Boswells then helped develop the area into a thriving village when it had previously been barren moorland. A bigger growth to the area happened when mining and quarrying came to the region; by 1881 the parish population had blossomed and was 6,681.
