Stevenson is part of the ‘Three Towns’ along with Saltcoats and Ardrossan. Stevenston was first mentioned in a charter of 1189, at which time St. Monoch’s Fair was held here annually. Archaeological studies at nearby Ardeer Sands found weapons dating back to pre-historic times. The town was named after Stephen Lockhart after he obtained the grant of land in c1191, owning the town and Kerelaw Castle. Kerlaw Castle is now in a state of decay and the ruins are fenced off, the remaining wall displays beautiful gothic windows.
