Girvan is a small town on the Ayrshire coast to the south of Ayr. It started life as a fishing port at the mouth of the Water of Girvan, but has developed into a small resort on the coast, with a distillery and factory on the northern edge of the town. It is also one of the few places for Irish ferry traffic to stop on the way south to Cairnryan, so the shops and cafes secure a lot of passing trade.

The main road through the town is the A77, which runs south from Glasgow to Stranraer and Cairnryan. Despite being a busy road carrying a lot of lorries, it still passes through the town centre, on a one way system, and there are no plans to bypass the town anytime soon. At the south end of the town, the A714 turns inland and crosses through the hills to the Galloway Forest and Newton Stewart. North of the town, the B734 heads east, and takes a circuitous route via Barr to the A714, whilst the B741 heads northeast to Dalmellington. In the town itself, the B7022 forms a short loop at the northern end of the one-way system, but is not part of it.
