Kilmarnock station lies on the Glasgow South Western Line in East Ayrshire, Scotland. The current station, which opened in 1846, is the last of three stations to have served the town - the first incarnation was one of the earliest stations in Scotland, built in 1812 before being replaced in 1943. The station is made up of four platforms, and runs regular services to Glasgow Central, Carlisle, Ayr & Girvan and Stranrear. Kilmarnock station is also popular with 'Rail and Sea' passengers, thanks to a connecting bus that runs to Cairnryan for onward ferry travel to Belfast. The town is most famous for whiskey and words. It was once home to the Johnnie Walker bottling plants, and was immortalised in the Kilmarnock Volume, a selection of verses by the legendary Scottish poet Robert Burns. Today, the town is home to bustling shopping precinct, packed with well-known high street names, pubs, restaurants and cafes.
