After a chance meeting with Alec Clark this afternoon I learned about a brand new website that has just been launched to promote Girvan and Carrick at large. You can find it at CarrickAyrshire and it is a very fine and informative read indeed. Alec runs the excellent ‘Sweetie Shop’ in Girvan which I frequent with the children rather often and we have known each other for about six years now. I have said to him on several occasions that Girvan needs a bigger online profile (indeed this blog appears top of search rankings for the town quite often) and this website certainly provides it.
CarrickAyrshire has pages on the history of the region, a gallery of excellent images of the region, filterable maps of attractions and services, a rolling list of ‘what is on locally’, a news page with readable content and a contact form. On top of this there are other extra features such as places to stay and places to eat. It is all clean and easy to navigate and is an excellent place to plan a trip from or to look for events to attend. So have a look and a read about the region where I live and work.
I expect to look it up rather often. Thanks Alec!
