Riccarton is a village and parish in East Ayrshire, Scotland. It lies across the River Irvine from Kilmarnock. The river Irvine divides the parishes of Riccarton and Kilmarnock and the river used to form the boundary between the districts of Kyle and Cunninghame. The origin of the name 'Riccarton' is from a corruption of 'Richard's town'. This Richard was Sir Richard Wallace, uncle of William Wallace.
