Kilwinning is located on the banks of the River Garnock and is neighboured by the coastal towns of Stevenson, Ardrossan and Saltcoats to the west, and Irvine to the south. In the mid-1960s Kilwinning fell within the area designated as Irvine New Town and expanded rapidly. Within the town there are several primary schools and one major secondary school, Kilwinning Academy. The large North Ayrshire Campus of James Watt College was built in Kilwinning and completed in the summer of 2000. The town centre offers a number of local shops and restaurants with excellent shopping available in Irvine which includes retail parks and a variety of outlet stores and supermarkets.

The Ayrshire coast is famous worldwide for golf with championship courses at Royal Troon, Prestwick and Turnberry, all of which have hosted the Open Championship. There is excellent sailing on the Firth of Clyde with yachting marinas at Troon and, further up the coast, at Ardrossan, Largs and Inverkip.

The A737 provides good access to the M8 and Glasgow to the north and there is a main line railway station in Kilwinning which provides a fast journey time to Glasgow in the north and Ayr to the south. Locally there are also the international airports of Glasgow (20 miles) and Prestwick (14 miles).
