Mauchline is a town and civil parish in the East Ayrshire region of Scotland. The parish is situated close to the Glasgow and South Western Railway Line, approximately eight miles to the south east of Kilmarnock and 11 miles to the north east of Ayr. The River Ayr runs through the southernmost part of the parish and is approximately one mile to the south of the town itself.
The landscape of the area which now makes up the parish of Mauchline is actually now drastically different than it would have been a few hundred years ago, with two nearby lochs having been drained at one time or another. This process first occurred in the 18th century when Bruntwood Loch was drained for agricultural purposes, despite being an important habitat for wildfowl. It was the construction of the railway line from Kilmarnock which caused Loch Brown to the west of Mauchline to be drained, leaving the surroundings very much as they still appear today.
According to the latest available census data the town and wider parish of Mauchline supports a more than decent population of 4,105 people, and this brings both benefits and challenges to the area. On the benefits side for instance, a greater level of population does mean that there is greater economic activity in the town and this in turn leads to the existence of a larger number of facilities and amenities being provided for residents. Offsetting these benefits, at least to a degree, however, are challenges such as a greater amount of road traffic, elevated noise and air pollution levels and higher accident and injury rates, which are just some of the symptoms of a larger population. It is the third of these challenges which means that for personal injury solicitors in Mauchline, the region can be a likely area to find compensation claims.
