Dailly (Scottish Gaelic: Dail Mhaol Chiarain)[1] is a village in South Ayrshire, Scotland. It is located on the Water of Girvan, 5 miles (8.0 km) south of Maybole, and 3.1 miles (5.0 km) east of Old Dailly. "New Dailly", as it was originally known, was laid out in the 1760s as a coal-mining village. In 1849 a fire broke out in Maxwell Colliery, one of the nearby mines, and continued to burn for 50 years.
