Woodland and open green spaces, including playing fields, separate Dreghorn from Irvine New Town, with the district of Broomlands adjoining the park.

At a crossroads immediately to the east of the church, Station Brae runs north down the hill to the former Dreghorn railway station , and the B runs south towards Drybridge , crossing the River Irvine at Holmsford Bridge.

The Doric of North-East Scots meets both the traditional qualifications. On the one hand, its broadness can present difficulty even for Scots in other parts of Scotland, while on the other, its richest manifestation has always been found in the rural hinterland, where the language has recorded and labelled all the trappings of everyday life in what was a largely farming and fishing community.
There was no road to the harbour, access was across the sands. Beyond Westgate there were two tracks, one leading south to the ruins of the old Abbey Abbey Road and the other following what is now Pointgarry Road leading through open ground to Whin Stone Quarry, the remains of which can be traced on the West Links.
