Anyone considering buying a property in Seamill and West Kilbride will benefit from the endeavours of the local initiative group. West Kilbride is now achieving fame as the "Craft Town of Scotland" and the village boasts a growing number of craft shops and studios, as well as several leading artists including Silversmith Marion Kane. The Initiative Centre provides a convenient way for craftspeople to sell their art and craftwork in return for a share of the profits. In September 2006, West Kilbride Craft Town won the Department of Trade and Industry's "Enterprising Britain 2006" competition.
West Kilbride is known for its community spirit & hosts an Annual Scarecrow festival along with many other community aimed activities. With an attractive Glen for walks, a swing park, football fields, short walk to the shore, bowling greens, quaint cafes & bars there is always something to be doing.
Seamill is sometimes considered part of West Kilbride and sometimes considered as a village in its own right. The local authority has sought to consolidate it with West Kilbride by signposting it as "West Kilbride incorporating Seamill", however it is still locally identified as an entity in its own right. With the Seamill Hydro, beautiful seaside walks & West Kilbride golf course it is a highly popular residential location with some fantastic shorefront properties.
