Kirkmichael is a lovely quiet village located between Maybole (3 miles east), Straiton & Patna. It was a weaving village and entire families often worked from home on the unique craft of Whitework. As you enter the village from Maybole, you will immediately spot the award winning Kirkmichael Arms. To the left along Patna Road you will find the unique Kirkmichael Community Shop & Cafe with Carrick Community noticeboard outside. The McCosh Hall in which the café & shop are found, was gifted to the village by John McCosh & opened in 1899. It now houses a History Corner upstairs. Further along the road is another interesting area around the Village Church with c17th Lych Gate & Graveyard with the Covenanter McAdam Memorial. Kirkmichael is a popular rest stop for cyclists & walkers.
