The 5 new homes are planned to be well spaced and set within level grounds with a leafy escarpment backdrop and with westerly views to Arran & the firth of Clyde, interupted by the historic 14th century Portencross castle with its fortified tower and quaint little ancient harbour.

About half a mile to the south are the manicured fairways of West Kilbride Golf course as well as the expansive sandy beaches at Ardneil Bay & Seamill.

Portencross is about 1.5 miles from the town of West Kilbride/Seamill, about 7.5 miles to the south of the town of Largs and about 32 miles from the centre of Glasgow.

The village centre of West Kilbride/Seamill is about 1.5 miles away where there is a range of shops and provision stores which easily cater for everyday needs and requirements.

Largs (6.5 miles) and Kilwinning (7.5 miles) provide a further range of retail facilities as do the more prominent Ayrshire towns of Kilmarnock, Prestwick and or Ayr.

West Kilbride has a reputable local primary school and the district has secondary schooling options at Largs, Ardrossan and Saltcoats.

The Braehead & Silverburn shopping centres are both about 27 miles to the east and there one can find a tremendous range of high street multiples together with M&S and Sainsbury anchor stores. Braehead also has an IKEA furniture store.

The city of Glasgow at 32 miles has all the cultural, higher educational and leisure services normally associated with a major international centre.

Prestwick airport is 20 miles to the south and Glasgow airport is about 23 miles to the east, both offer a range of domestic and international flights.

The A78 Ayrshire coast road provides good access to towns to the north and south and the B781 leads on to the A737 and the M8 motorway corridor all of which provide fast motor car access to central Scotland and beyond.

For sports/outdoor enthusiasts, West Kilbride is indeed an excellent location. West Kilbride has its own 18 hole golf course, (the northern edge of the course is about half a mile away) the course was originally set up by Old Tom Morris until its redesign in 1905 by James Braid.

In addition, the village has its own tennis club and the surrounding countryside which is some of the most attractive in Ayrshire, provides endless walks or cycling opportunities. The sheltered coastal waters of the firth of Clyde and west coast islands provide some of the most picturesque sailing in Europe and there are marina and chandlery services at Largs, Inverkip, Ardrossan and Troon.
