Large Site, Adjacent to A78 in North Ayrshire, Suitable for Commercial Development -In Total Approx. 22.6 Acres


Irvine is a former “New Town”, located on the coast of the Firth of Clyde, approximately 25 miles (40 km) south west of Glasgow. There are approx. 34,000 inhabitants making it the largest settlement in North Ayrshire. The sites are located 1.5 miles south east of the Irvine town centre and have excellent road communications being adjacent to both the A78 and A72 and serviced by the Warrix Interchange. Glasgow is only 30 minutes’ drive away and neighbouring businesses include Barony Universal, Hyster Yale Group and the South Newmoor Industrial Estate, with occupiers including Screwfix and Plumbase.

The land for sale forms part of an Enterprise Area for Scotland’s Life Sciences and as such offers incentives to companies and businesses considering moving to the area.


This is a large, rectangular, flat ‘Greenfield’ site with services and infrastructure to suit all sizes of incoming commercial companies. The site would be suitable for office pavilions and or industrial uses.

Bounded by trees and the road verge of Riverside Way on the east and the A78 along the entire length of the western perimeter, the site enjoys good prominence. Trees and shrubs form a fringe around much of the site with post and wire fencing forming the boundary. A SUDS pond (surface water drainage system) on the site and banking to the road, covered in young trees and shrubs makes an attractive setting but also created a differential in the gross and nett developable areas. These are estimated as shown in the Site Area section.

Site Area

Gross area - 9.15 Ha (22.6 Acres) approx.

Nett Developable Area - 6.6Ha (16.5 Acres) approx
