Situated in the southwest
of Scotland, Maybole is a small town built on a sloping hillside and
overlooks the Southern Uplands with a magnificent view of these rolling
hills. The ancient kingdom of Carrick is the part of Ayrshire south of the
River Doon. Maybole lies 44 miles southwest of Glasgow and about 5 miles
east of the Firth of Clyde.

Over the years several writers have published the story of Maybole through
the centuries up to their own time. The people of Maybole are indebted to
them for their painstaking and literary efforts and we have
included extracts of their works on this site. None of them, however,
envisaged the phenomenon of the World Wide Web! Now Maybole has a
tremendous opportunity to let the world know of its long and rich history,
and what is happening today.
We extend a
warm welcome to all and an invitation to visit our town if not in person
at least on this site. Maybole currently has a population of under 5,000
citizens but through the Internet I have the notion that, at least in
their hearts, that number could grow.
